The community for being there for us with the calls, prayers, hugs, words of encouragement, and most especially the love.

So often most of these people are taken for granted for the jobs and offices they hold. You showed your caring and kindness during one of the hardest parts of our lives and it meant so much to each of us. If we failed to mention you by name, please charge it to our heads, but most definitely not our hearts. We offer blessings to each of you. Thank you, thank you. You are so appreciated.

The Davis, Coffee, Hamilton, Collins, Dixon, Shipman and Stafford families
