Dear First Free Family,

Thank you for the lovely plant in honor of my dad, Ted August. It will make a lovely addition to Mom's new apartment!

We truly appreciate everything that First Free has done for my parents over the last few years! Thank you for the visits to their home and to Dad in the hospital. He was always so happy to have visitors.

We would also like to thank you for the meal for our family prior to Dad's service. What a blessing you all have been to us.

We miss Dad, but we know that he is enjoying life eternal with our Lord and we will see him again!

With Love,
Bryn Cornell (for the Augusts)

Thank you for the thoughtful words via cards/messages regarding the death of my mother. They remind me of the hope we have even in times of sadness. The plant is beautiful and brings freshness and beauty to our home.

Steve and I are thankful to belong to the family of God/First Free, a caring group of brothers and sisters in Christ.
