A Thank You Note from the Jones family

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ of PCR:

There are no words to express our gratitude and love for you. I have struggled to find words over the past weeks. In the end, I shall say from the bottom of my heart: Thank you. And I love you dearly. Thank you for the beautiful reception and send-off in worship. Thank you for your cards and notes and prayers. Thank you for the thoughtful and generous gift of passes to Disney! They are well used and so appreciated! We think of you all whenever we swipe our armbands and we smile and say a prayer of thanksgiving. You are family and always will be. The ties of the heart connect us and I am so grateful for those ties and you all. God Bless you and may the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.

Love,

The Jones Family
