Dear Church Family,

Thank you so much for supporting us during Ian's illness and my dad's homegoing. We are so grateful for all the prayers lifted up on Ian's behalf. Thanks for the phone calls and notes. Special thanks to our wonderful Sunday school class for praying. God is very good and it is truly a miracle Ian is still with us today. We have a very awesome God---he is able to do what is impossible for man to do.

Dear First Free Family,

When Greg died, my brain shifted into this mental fog/hurricane, trying to process everything (still is). But one thing was crystal clear--the love and comfort of everyone at First Free. The ladies who prepared the wonderful lunch for my family, the beautiful plant sitting by my fireplace, and the sweet Christmas bag delivered today are all such tangible representations of Christ's love coming through his church to me. I hope you know how much I appreciae it. I am so blessed to be part of your family.

Thank you so much for the peace lily that was sent in honor of our father, Harry Castelli. We as a family were so blessed to have parents with a deep faith and a strong church family.
