Family extends thanks to community

Friday, March 27, 2009

To the Editor:

This is a public thank-you to the community.

Our family has been touched beyond words by your kindness during the illness and passing of our wife and mother. We felt the generosity, love and warmth of many family and friends.

We are very thankful for the prayers, cards, meals, calls, and the visitors at home and in the hospital. We are especially grateful for the gifts received, both personal and to the church, donations from local businesses and individuals for the benefit auction, and all the wonderful food donations.

Special thanks go to Bainbridge Christian Church, Bainbridge Improvement Society and the North Putnam School Corporation. We would also like to take this opportunity to recognize the staff of Advocate Hospice and the ministers that called, stopped by, prayed with us and for us -- which brought peace and healing during this difficult time.

The community has reached out in a way that has overwhelmed and humbled us.

We are truly blessed. Thank you!

The DeBoer Family: Don, Donna, DaFanion and Darcie Green
