“If I had a problem needing help of any kind, several special friends were always there:  John Tisdale, Joy Butler, Frances Dean, Jack Brown, Paul and Gayle Henry and Robin, Steve and Mary Yee, Robert Pruitt, and Bob Clowers. They were amazing, may God bless them.  I can’t forget all my precious friends at the Church and the Centers, you know who you are!  Thank you for your friendship and helping me get through rough times.”
