THANK YOU

Dear Central Family,

Your generous and thoughtful gift of the fruit and goodie basket was very encouraging and delicious. We have enjoyed it so much and were reminded of what we’ve been missing by not being there with you for so long. Thank you for each and every prayer and for your cards and gifts of encouragement. I am on the mend from my fall and my nose procedure, and we look forward to being with you soon. You are always a blessing to us.   Love,

Shirley & Sam O’Hanian
