Cards Of Thanks


The family of Richard Kipe would like to extend our appreciation to our family and friends for the acts of kindness shown to us during the passing of our husband, father and grandfather.

Thanks for the phone calls, cards, food, visits, flowers and fruit baskets. A special thank-you to the individuals and groups who donated 19 Gideon-placed Bibles in Richard’s memory. Thanks to Heartland Hospice, especially Beth and Gloria, for their compassionate care given to Pappy during his residence at Manor- Care.

Thank you to Rev. Paul Martin for his nice comments during the funeral services and to Alan Fries, Lininger-Fries Funeral Home, for his professional care and compassion extended to our family.

May God bless each and everyone.

Wow! We have so many to thank but most importantly God who has never left Jeff’s or my side.

Secondly, thanks to our parents and family for all your help. Jeff and I also want to thank our co-workers at Mercersburg Family Care and PennDOT. A special thank-you to Clear Ridge United Methodist Church, Walnut Grove Church, Dublin Mills Community Church, Fairview and Center United Methodist Church and Cedar Grove Christian Church.

Also, thanks goes to the founders of the Daisy Fund, Forbes Road Elementary School staff, Vickie Gordon, Susie and Paul Schmidt, Rex and Teresa Divens, Beta Sigma Fi, Terry and Cathy Henry, Greg and Erma Henry, Joyce Strait, Deb Miller, Melissa at M&M Salon and Ferne Mellott, Rex and Dawn Black, Jerre and Nikki Parsons, Naomi Walker, Harry and Janet Helser, Mary Brown, Dalton, Kera and Colton Gilbert, Tom and Maxine Newman, and Lake Insurance.

Thank you to all the pastors who visited: Pastor Betty Secrist, Denny Ples-singer, Bill Chilcote, Jack Hicks, Kevin and Jenny Wade, Deb Strait and William Swope.

We want to thank the Lodge for hosting a benefit meal and also Ashlyn’s Angels for hosting a silent auction and dance coming up this March. We know we will never be able to bless you like you have blessed us, but know God will bless you. All the prayers were the reason I was able to get through this and why God laid his healing hands on Jeff and continues to strengthen and heal him. If I have forgotten someone, we are sorry.

God bless you all.

Jeff, Becky,

Chris and Doug Everts
