Where do I begin with the thank yous that I’d like to say? Those of you who were able to come on Sunday to the Farewell Service, have heard my thank yous to each and every one of you for all that you have done and all that we have shared over the last 10 years. I can honestly say that I have loved (almost!) every single moment of ministering in the Tenbury Team & I don’t think blessings get any greater than that!

I’d also like to thank everyone who has sent me cards, gifts and good wishes and many thanks too for the extremely generous retirement gift, apple tree and beautiful flowers that I was presented with: I will be purchasing something with it that will always, always, remind me of you all: how many good memories are in store!

Thank you too for the kind words spoken on Sunday and for the delicious refreshments and all the organising of them.

To be honest I was glad that I didn’t break down during the service (thanks to the prayers I know some of you were praying for me) because, I knew that if I did, I would not be able to pull things back together. However the deep sadness of parting was present then and, is present now but I know that in the Tenbury Team, “All shall be well and all shall be well and all manner of things shall be well” (Julian of Norwich) and they will be well because of the good and faithful people that you are.

Undoubtedly there will be someone or something I have forgotten – abject apologies if this is so. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.
