I enjoyed the wonderful experience and gift, and I pray the Lord continues
to bless others as he has blessed us these past many months.

Many thanks go to Roberta Carpenter for writing the story, buying me the
new outfit, and putting this all together; Georgi Rhoades for doing all the
makeover work; the Goshen News for running the article; Gail and Esther
from the Goshen Salvation Army for thinking I needed a ‘hug’ that day;
Dale Parrott for scanning the article; my husband, Marcus, for encouraging
me to accept the gift; and the Lord for putting me in the right place, at the
right time, to receive such a gift.

I still have a ways to go with my weightloss, but I'm sure I'll get there!
