To My Dear friends,
Thank you so much, for all your love and support that you’ve given me. Your wonderful collection really has moved me beyond words, for once! With the incredible sum that you donated, I am delighted to say that I have purchased a new Apple MacBook Pro and a new all in one printer, all with the considerable help of David Lumley. I also will be able to purchase a number of supplies that I will need for my studies. The computer will help me for a great number of years, not just at College.
Thanks also must go to all those who helped organise my farewell party which I really appreciated. A tremendous amount of work must have gone into both the party and the service. Those who were involved in my farewell party and service are far too many to name individually but I was truly moved by the outpouring of affection towards me. My friends, as I said in my address, I go forward trusting in God, but also assured in the love you’ve shown me in the many years I have had the pleasure to live and worship alongside you. You really do hold a special place in my heart for all of the support you have given me. Thank you and may God continue to bless you. If you wish to keep in touch and please do, then my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and my new address will be, Ripon College, Cuddesdon, Oxford, OX44 9EX.
Please be assured of my prayers for you all and all of my love. Steve xxx
