Message of Thanks

This is Tolan. I just want to say thanks to everyone. We’ve had so many phone calls, voice mail and email messages and visits that we’re not keeping up very well and it may take us a little while to get back to you but we do appreciate the support. The meals and support from ward members, family, and friends has been overwhelming and we sincerely appreciate it.

Jodi, you probably don't know us but we are friends of your father. We served in Tonga and also in Hawaii, and we know the Lord knows and cares about all your suffering. He has felt it. Joseph Smith felt that the Lord deserted him but not so. He will help you bear the trials. We pray for you. Elder and Sister Nixon. California San Diego Missionaries.

Hi Jodi, I am friends of your parents. My husband works with your father. I want you to know you and your family are in our continual prayers. I have submit you and your family's names on a temple prayer roll. I want you to know when the going gets tough, and life seems to be temporarily on the down side we need to be reminded that Heavenly Father does love us and knows what our needs are better than we do. He is always watching over his children on the earth, He will not leave you comfortless. He will be at your side, always, guiding you every step of the way.

Jodi, continue to put your trust and faith in Him. I have a beautiful inspiring poem a friend sent to me that I want to share with you.

"I wish for you..Comfort on difficult days, Smiles when saddness intrudes, Rainbows to follow the clouds, Laughter to kiss your lips, Sunsets to warm your heart, Gentle hugs when spirits sag, Friendships to brighten your being,Beauty for your eyes to see, Confidence for when you doubt, Faith so that you can believe. Courage to know yourself, Patience to accept the truth, And love to complete your life. GOD Bless You! I ask the Lord to bless you As I prayed for you today, To guide you and protect you as you go along your way... His love is always with you, His promises are true, No matter what the tribulation, You know He will see us through, So when the road you are traveling on seems so difficult at best Give your problems to the Lord and God will do the rest.

We are praying for you and your family daily, as well as for your parents and family, too.

Much love,
Carolyn Ralph

Please let me know if there is anything at all that I can do for you. I'm pretty good at cleaning and I love to bake. If you need any help with your kids or your house, please give me a call and I'd be glad to help. And, if you're up for some company one of these days, I would love to see you.
