"Receiving the check at that time as for us receiving a gift of love, concern, and support from friends and colleagues in ministry, and from the many laity who have become supporters of The Brotherhood/Sisterhood."
-James L. Pyatt
"Thank you so much for your personal attention to us during the time of my father's death and funeral. It meant a lot that you personally brought The Brotherhood/Sisterhood money for our mom. This was a great help in time of need."
-The family of Ivan Stephens
I cannot tell you how touched we were that you drove here from Belmont to deliver in person that wonderful check to me. I'm still flabbergasted at the huge amount - I truly, truly appreciate it, much more than I can express. The support of Conference cohorts has been tremendous, and I specially thank you for your help.
There is no way to let you know what the gift from the Brotherhood/Sisterhood meant to me. It's not just the money - the timeliness of the gift and the love and consideration that came with it brought comfort from Fletcher's peers that I shall never forget. I certainly want to be a part of this effort in the future so that I may impart this feeling to others. Thank you so much for your part in this.
