Appreciation

After co-leading a memorial service at a Rotary Summit meeting: “… thank you  for including me in the Summit Memorial Service  …  a portion [came from] the traditional Yom Kippur “Eyleh Ezkarah” (“These We Remember”) afternoon service. It was very appropriate for a memorial service, and I was honored to participate … May God bless your ministry in myriad ways.” — Rabbi Mark Golub

About the church’s coordination to offer a class facilitated by Rev Gail called “Introduction to Islam”  through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute / OLLI class: “Thank you so much for volunteering to be an OLLI presenter. I know how much time and effort it takes to develop a class and it is greatly appreciated! I was sorry to have to miss the second class, but I know that each time was thought provoking and informative. After the last class I asked my husband how he thought it went and his comment  was “superb”. I’m sure that opinion would be reflected by all. Again thank you so much for bringing this opportunity to Conway.”  — Laura J

“So many hugs! Thank you so much for the delicious soup, salad and bread you sent home with me after a spontaneous stop … it was so nice to meet you. Your church seems so wonderful and has such good, positive energy. Thanks for all you do.” — JW

Thank You from Jeanette Heidmann

To my friends in the Jackson Community

First I wish to acknowledge all of your prayers, cards and concerns for Steve and & over the past weeks, months and years.  While his passing leaves a great personal void, I am comforted by your eagerness to reach out and help in whatever way is needed.  Right now slow, small contacts seem best, rather than the overwhelming idea of facing all of your loving and caring faces at once. You have been such a great community not only for myself but also good friends to Steve. While not a great church goer, you are the community he called friends and neighbors.

So many have offered to bring food, but with just me, my needs are small and I have a large stockpile of items in the pantry and freezer. If anyone would like to arrange to come over and cook lunch or dinner with me that would be welcome, as long as it wasn’t every night. :-).

Don’t be surprised if you see me on the snowshoe or ski trails or at the post office. Getting out and being active is great therapy and I look forward to joining you in these adventures over the next couple of weeks.

With Love & Thanks, Jeanette Heidmann
