IN APPRECIATION: Words cannot begin to express how special 

 you all made my retirement day celebration!

 1. First of all the worship service was awesome: thank you 

 Pastor Rick for giving a message that was so dear to my heart, 

 thank you to Paul and the Praise Team for joining with me in

 praise to our great God, thank you to my little granddaughters

 for singing ‘Jesus Loves Me’, thank you to my daughter for

 singing ‘Friends’ with me, and thank you to you all who were


 2. Thank you also for the wonderful dinner and celebration in the

 Fellowship Hall: The Hall was decorated so beautifully, the meal

 was delicious (the part I could get down in all the excitement),

 and the ‘words spoken’ (and gifts) were so special!.....given by my

 fellow staff friends (who shy away from microphones…..and once

 again, words don’t really express how much I appreciate your

 love and help over the many years!) Thank you to Tymie and the

 kitchen ‘friends’ who did their work behind the scenes with such a

 willing heart!

 3. Thank you to everyone for the prayers, cards, gifts, and to those

 who came to me personally to express gratitude. I will always

 cherish the expressions of love and gratitude that you wrote in

 the little book that Sue put together.

 4. Thank you to my husband, children, grandchildren, extended

 family, friends and ‘fellow workers’ in other areas of my life, who

 came to the dinner celebration….it wouldn’t have been fun

 without you all here!

 5. THANK YOU to my great GOD who is the reason for everything! 

 It is HE who gives the Spirit who gives us the power and ability

 and love to do anything right! PRAISE His Name!

 I love you! Shari Dood
