Saying Good-bye Is Never Easy

Good-bye, house. You were an amazing house, with lots of room and lots of character. You gave us good shelter and really great times. You hosted wonderful gatherings, helped us build wonderful friendships and provided wonderful welcomes for family and friends. You gave us the world's greatest neighbors and Jaycie a built-in best friend. Unfortunately, your yard gave Lee too much work and too many weeds and triggered Ashley's allergies too many times, so we won't miss it much. However, we will always love you, and we'll miss you when we're gone, but we know it's time to move on. Take care of the next crew. Au revoir!

I know that it is sad to leave such a wonderful house. But God will lead you and Lee to another wonderful house that you will one day call home again. A house that you can fill with joy and laughter. A house that you can fill with friends both new and old. A house that your family and friends will fill with love and you will decorate to once again be a beautiful home.

Transitions like this are never easy are they? We love you all so much and felt very welcomed at your home, but we know that you will welcome us with open arms regardless what the address is. We love you all and will continue to pray for you. You are a sweet family and we are blessed to call you friends.

Goodbye dusty baseboards and swept and mopped floors!

Goodbye dirty windows and cleaned cabinet doors!

Goodbye swollen baseboards we were told just weren't cool!

Hello new maintenance-free dwelling with a nice swimming pool!

Lee, Jaycie, Hannah and especially you are in our thoughts and prayers. We know that this and the past few weeks have been difficult for you all and we have and will continue to pray for you all. You and Lee (and the kids) mean so much to us and we are blessed to have you in our lives. It will get better. We love you!

I know it is hard to move, and I know this one has been especially hard. Your family is so loved by us all, and you are in our prayers.
You and Lee have had such a vital impact upon our children and we treasure you both. We are here if you need anything at all.

I know this is a hard time for all of you. You all are in our prayers. I know you will find the perfect house once again that you will call home. We can not tell you and Lee how much we appreciate all you do for our church and the children in our church.
