Dear First Free Church Family,

Thank you for the love and care you have shown our family for over five decades! Even though my husband and I currently worship at GraceFirst, we consider all of you as our spiritual family. Your love and friendship shown to my dad, Bill Fouty, was indeed a lifeline for him. Thank you for helping us through the past few difficult years. All the visits form Mike, Phil, Dick and his wife were greatly appreciated by both Bill and us.

Blessings to all,
Laurel Tiger

Dear First Free Church Family,

We are so very grateful to the Lord for the love of the Body of Christ lived out in so many ways to encourage and help us during Gladys' illness and home going.

Thank you for the cards, phone calls, pastoral visits, meals, the lovely plant, and especially your prayers. We have witnessed the Lord's faithfulness in answering those prayers as He has provided strength and comfort to our family.

Thank you also for the deaconesses who prepared the lunch that was enjoyed by so many, for Dean & Gary in managing the audio and visual for the service, and for Dick for preparing and leading the graveside and celebration of her life.

We are thankful to the Lord for each of you.

In Christ,
Del Hinckle & Family

Dear First E. Friends,

It has been a week since you honored us for our 65th anniversary with roses (and Dick delivered them!) They are still being enjoyed in our home by us and all who come! Thank you so very much for your thoughtfulness. Yes! 65 years is a milestone in our lives.

We are so grateful for God's goodness over all these years. And each of our thirty-nine years here at First Free has been a total blessing for us!

Thank you for your thoughtfulness to us and for providing the teaching and fellowship we have enjoyed. Truly, it's a blessing for us as we travel this road of following Jesus.

Your Fellow Travelers,
George and Marjean Fooshee

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

We are so humbled by God as He has comforted and strengthened us through prayers, concern, care, plants and cards from the Body of Christ.

What an incredible holy season we are in as we celebrate our Lord and Savior's life, death and resurrection.

We are so grateful to be in Christ and learning from our sorrow how to care and bear with one another.

Thank you again as you supported us for God's glory.

With love,
Mark & Amy Michaelis
