To my dearest friends:
Most of you know by now that on Monday, April 12, 2010 I suffered a heart attack. It would be presumptuous and absolutely facetious to assume that our family would ever be able to thank our entire community for the outpouring of love and support that was showered on us during this time.
I was released from the hospital on Friday, April 23, 2010. We are home now and will continue to face a number of “transitional issues”. We all realize that God was again “gracious, kind, and merciful” to us throughout this entire episode. Our prayer now is that God will make sure that we understand what our “future purpose” is and that we remain able to serve Him until the end.
I am grateful to the Statesboro Herald for allowing me to use this space to try to express a very “inadequate thank-you” to each of you. May God continue to bless each of you along with our community, our State, and our great Nation.
