Thanking others for their kindness

Dear Editor,

The “Friends of Cheryl” would like to say a great big thank you from each of us for all who supported our fundraising efforts for Cheryl Exley Tyre in her battle with cancer.  Whether you baked items for the bake sale, gave items for the yard sale, provided items for our raffle, sold raffle tickets or gave a donation, we are very grateful.  The business support in Springfield is greatly appreciated, too.

It is indeed heartwarming to see that Effingham County came together so well to support our friend and loved one. We are very pleased to have collected over $5,000. Cheryl is most grateful and is doing well with the chemotherapy treatments. She was overwhelmed by the support of co-workers, friends, family, church members and strangers. The ECHS class of 1972, now scattered all over the country, gave awesome monetary gifts of support.

May each of you be blessed in 2014 and uplifted by the kind deeds you find a way to do for others.

Debbie Y. Trowell, Flarleen Young, Gina Bridges, Peggy Smith, Susan Exley and Dennis Sikes
