Roanna and I would like to express our sincere appreciation for all the prayers, calls, cards and all the other expressions of concern for us following the fall that seriously injured my right leg Sept. 19. Pastors, your calls were blessings. And thank you to the EMS from MHHS for your care and careful attention. Thank you to Arthur and Betty Duelley for the huge steak you gave me for my homecoming. To Ben and Anita West, thank you for the delicious home cooked meal. And to our children, Rhonda and Neil, and to Mary Ann, Charlotte, Janice and Misty, a very special thank you for helping us through this trying time. Both bones, the tibia and the fibula, were broken below the knee, the femur was broken just above the knee and the knee joint was badly damaged. I am home now and doing well. I hope to be able to put weight on my leg by the middle of December. Again, thank you. Your prayers and expressions of concern will never be forgotten.

  John S. and Roanna Stump
