A note from Twilight and Shirley ...

Dear Ariel,
   Thank you for all your help to me and Gaby.  All you have done to us was greatly appreciated.   During our deepest moment, I found solace in all the kind words extended to us and most especially to all the prayers - lightened our mind and spirit.  As we continue our life's journey, I will always remember that you were there at the time we needed you most.
I am so grateful for that.  May the Lord will continue to bless you even more.
   Please extend my heartfelt gratitude to the United Reform Church (Wheatley).   I thanked them for their generosity.  May the Lord will multiply His blessings unto them.  Once again thank you.
Love in Christ,
Twilight King

Dear Mr. Ariel Lanada,

Ruth 2:12: May the Lord repay you for what you have done.

Kind Regards,
Shirley and Carla
