Dear Friends at First Baptist Church of Bemis,
On behalf of our family, thank you so very much for your heartfelt
prayers in remembrance of John Growe, loving husband, father and
friend. Your kindness and words of comfort during this stressful
time in our lives is greatly appreciated.
The Growes
Thank you so much for all of the prayers I received during my surgery. Everything is good and I will have a test every 3 months for
a year. I feel so blessed for all the prayers I received during that
time.
Love,
Dianne Maynard
Thank you and God bless you in return for your kindness. Words
seem so little in expressing our heart felt feeling for the visits,
thoughts and much needed prayers. Thank you so much.
