Dear Cornerstone Family,
My deepest gratitude for the words spoken to me, the cards, the generous gift of thanks and the beautiful reception put together by Sidney Graff and several volunteers. I have been truly overwhelmed by your generosity and love and the deep presence of the Lord through it all. I have recalled many touching moments with you as you streamed through the doors at my reception. I am blessed beyond expression. So grateful to be continuing on together for you are the dearest of church families. Grace and tough joy and with love,
~ Linda Thomas
