Thank you from the Romers

This comes to us from our friends. . .

Dear Susan and the St. Stephen's family,

What a tribute!

There are no words to truly express our thanks. You have succeeded in overwhelming us and leaving us grasping for words to describe the depth of our gratitude.

What a lot of thought, caring, and energy went into the beautiful Romerfest celebration! Our hearts are overflowing with gratitude, thanks and praise for this wonderful family of St. Stephen's. We love you dearly and will miss you in so many ways.

It's incredible how many ideas and memories went into the preparation and execution of the delicious candlelit meal, loving poem by Susan, the reading of letters afar by the "mature" youth group members, Casey's loving tribute, the incredible DVD by Ray and Jane, the banner of leaves leading from St. Stephen's to the Cape Cod lighthouse.

Talking and sharing memories with you who braved a very cold Wednesday night was so special and touched us deeply. Even as we drove away, seeing the cleanup crew at work we remembered when we helped with cleanup. Your hugs and love will help us through our new adventure. We pray that out contact with you will span the distance and always keep us in touch.

Wednesday night worship in the church with so many friends, with such special music, sermon and sending forth has left us with feelings of love and appreciation. God has truly blessed us all in this special place.

We've had but thirty years in its ongoing life but know St. Stephen's will move into greater and greater witness of God's love within and without its light-filled walls. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
