    I want to thank everyone in our community for the kindness and support you have shown us during the close to 20 years we have been full-time Peninsula residents. There have been times, especially in the past few months, that you’ve kept me propped up and going. Thanks for everything, especially your prayers.
    Our Peninsula is the best place we could possibly live.
