A heartfelt reaction from a senior served…

Thought you might find this excerpt of a letter from a person you helped with your amazing generosity. This “thank you” will really touch your heart and confirm why assisting our ministry is such a worthwhile endeavor:

“Dear Golden Cross Senior Ministries,

Simple words fail to express the joy in my soul. The kindness, caring and compassion you demonstrate may not be measured in dollars and cents. Thank you, thank you to your patrons, thanks you to all who work for your exceptional organization.

I recently moved into (A Wesley Living Community). I had little food, taking my meals on the floor. A beautiful one bedroom apartment, that was clean as can be. I worried how I was ever going to keep it clean with simply a rag and a bar of soap. My clothes were soiled and needed to be washed.

On September 18th, my doorbell rang and (a Wesley Living staff member) along with my Service Coordinator came bearing food, cleaning supplies and everything imaginable to start my new life…That afternoon a beautiful sofa and dinette set arrived, I was overcome and wept openly. (Much to the dismay of the moving men!)

I thank you for all these gifts. Please be aware, what I realize now, the most important gifts you gave me were a sense of dignity, self-respect and a renewed feeling of hope in what was a new chapter in my life.

Please thank all who give to your ministries. Assure them they are touching the heart and souls of seniors like me. I am a better, kinder, more loving human being than I was before. God bless all of you…”

Thank you all for helping create this heartfelt reaction!
