Thank You For Everything Friends!


I would just like to say personally thank you for everything that people across the state and country have done for my grandfather as he has been ill these past few months. I never expected to see such an outpouring of love and support from so many people. From the people who have mowed their lawn. To the endless cards and calls of encouragement and the food that has been delivered by so many people. I personally have been blown away by the random acts of kindness that people in the Comanche area have done to try and help during this difficult time. There are no words or posts on Facebook or cards that can express how much you have helped during this time. Comanche and the surrounding area took care of one of their own when he was in a time of need. My grandparents are my inspiration on how I should live my life and we still have a recovery process to go through , but it is a miracle he is alive and celebrating his 89th birthday today! The endless prayers from across the country were heard by God and God answered the prayers and it was not Papa’s time to go. Papa still has a purpose on this earth. I am so fortunate to have both of them in my life and I love them so much and I saw just how much their friends love them also. Mikaela, Jade and Amber thank you for being my rocks of comfort and strength. You all are always there when I need you. Thank you Shane and the Nurses that have been there for my grandfather. The healthcare workers in Stephenville and Ft. Worth and Kerry Dudley  our conversation the other night brought me peace.   It brings me to tears to think of the random acts of kindness people have done over the past few months. From the bottom of my heart I say, Thank You! I will never forget this. I would like to close with a quote from the Wizard of Oz. When the Tin Man got a heart and the Wizard told him: “The measure of a man’s heart is not by how much he loves, but how much he is loved by others.”
