Dear Mrs. Jane Woodings and Family,
Even though I never met You, I feel that I know You, having met your son Robert a couple of years ago. It is evident that you and your husband trained him very well. He has been a wonderful blessing to all my neighbors and me. Thank you for saying yes to God and bringing him into the world as a good servant of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Sincerely,
Ed and Oralia Gurka
