From a patient: Thanks for your love and kindness

To the editor:

I would like to take this opportunity to try and express our thanks to the many, many individuals that provided us with prayers and love over the past few months. It is hard to find the words to say how we feel so I guess we will go with that familiar phrase: “Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

From the start of my journey to the end, I never felt that I was alone. Number one and most important I knew that I had God with me at all times, even when things got a little rough and I could tell my faith was wavering, He held me tighter with reassurance that He would carry me through.

We will never be able to repay everyone for what they did for us. I want to thank all my family and friends for the support they gave Bob the day of my surgery at Danville. It gave me great peace when they all walked out, knowing they were going to be with Bob. I want to pass on my love and thanks to our entire family, our friends, our church family, past co-workers and the entire medical team of doctors, assistants, nurses and techs.

Yes, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the many individuals that offered their love and support that I did not know on a personal basis. Most importantly, we thank you for your prayers because this is what we need on a daily basis. Also, we want to say thanks for all the cards, phone calls, flowers, visits (at Danville, Mount Nittany and at home), food and the Sunshine Box.

A special blessing came from our Wesley Chapel U.M. Church and our family with their schedule and delivery of meals for Bob and I. Without God, family and friends we would have been a sinking ship.

I have now been discharged with a successful recovery and look forward to getting back into the swing of everyday life. Please allow me once again to say thank you.
