Thank you for helping me celebrate my 80th birthday with your cards, letters and gifts.

Special thanks for the cards from Whips Cove Christian Church and ladies class at Pleasant Ridge Church of the Brethren.

Love, Dorthula R. Fletcher


The family of Steve Hoover would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the wonderful people who called, stopped by to visit, sent cards, food, flowers or sent monetary donations in his memory.

A special thank-you to Chris Ward and Jeff Shearer, who were the first to help Steve the morning he passed, the McConnellsburg Fire Co. for their rapid response and the Fulton County Medical Center emergency room staff for their care given that morning.

Also, a special thank-you to Jason and Darrin at Sipes Funeral Home for your kindness and sympathy shown during this very difficult time. We also want to send special thanks to the Willing Workers at St. Paul Lutheran Chruch and Giant Food for providing the food after the service. Pastor Allen Reed you were a gem and we thank you and Pastor Johnson for a beautiful service.

Steve touched many lives and those who knew him, loved him. That has shown through the love and kind words of how Steve influenced so many lives. Steve was an organ donor, which meant that even after his passing, he continued to give and help someone else in need.

Our hearts are very heavy, but we know that through our faith, family and friends, each day will become a little easier because of special people like you.

May God continue to richly bless all of you.

The family of Twila K. DeShong Martin wishes to extend our heartfelt thanks to all of our wonderful family and friends for the prayers, cards, phone calls, food, flowers and the Twila Martin Memorial Fund during the death of our wonderful wife, mother and daughter.

The words "thank you" seem so inadequate to express how loved and blessed we felt, but thank you to the York Springs United Methodist Church, Pastor Kevin Locker, Pastor Bill Baer, Eddie Piper, Crystal Springs Campmeeting Friends, Cocklin Funeral Home Inc., and Green Hill Sewing Club.

May God richly bless you always. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts. Twila's memory will last in our hearts forever.With all our love,

The Martin and DeShong families
