What a send off! What a great party! My deepest thanks to everyone involved who made my retirement party such a huge success. The whole event was so well planned and really allowed time for me to visit with all the people from church and the community who attended. It was delightful and wonderful.
I have read through the cards and the
rocks (what a fabulous memory to keep) and am touched by all the warm words of thanks and appreciation. Sunday evening reading through all of those was perhaps more emotional than the party.
The video display by Theresa Gleason was great and I look forward to going through it at home more closely. The toy trains the children made is so touching. I love the curved plaque and photo – and that photo even has the new sculpture in it – which is so awesome. I will take a picture of it this week. The sculpture is beautiful and much better than a new garden in my name!! Such a wonderful gift.
Special thanks to Sarah Peterson for such wonderful food – and gluten free crackers and cookies for Lynn were so appreciated. She and the whole team of planners provided the perfect setting for this event. I am touched and hum-bled by this outpouring of love.
With my deepest thanks for all your gifts, love and support.
