Patti…To say “thank you” seems so inadequate following such a wonderful program this morning. Not often do we have speakers who are so riveting that no one moves, clinks the tableware or glasses, or whispers to their neighbors…but that was the case this morning. Your story was so consuming and inspiring!

I cannot tell you how many women came to me and told me how much they appreciated your sharing such a moving account of faith in the darkest days a person could endure. We are so grateful to you for giving us a glimpse of how your faith in God healed you while He has also given you both the gift of sharing that faith and the opportunities to reach others when their faith might be faltering. Thank you for being such a blessing to us at the Tyler Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary!

Know how sublime a thing it is
To suffer and be strong…
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Patti….many, many thanks to you!
