The Valdosta Daily Times

-- — I want to thank the Outback Riders for another wonderful Toy Run. There will be a lot of happy children in our area that wouldn’t normally have a present under their tree. Keep up the excellent job!!

Thanks to the man who paid for my lunch Friday at Cracker Barrel. I was feeling down in the dumps and he made me feel a lot better. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Thank you, thank you!

I just wanted to give a great big Thank You to Moulton Branch Elementary. The faculty and staff love our children as much as we do. They work hard every day to make sure our kids are safe and getting the best education possible. ... Thank You!

A big thank you to the angel who gave the $800 to purchase the wheelchair for Kendall White. I do not know Mrs. White but so touched by the blessings. Also thank you for all that offered .

I want to thank the young man at Hambrick’s Christmas Tree Farm that helped my husband and I last Saturday. I’m sorry I don’t know his name but he was very friendly and helpful and was a pleasure to deal with.

My family would like to say a big thank you to Mark and his staff at Sunset Hill Cemetery. They were so good to us during a very difficult time in our life.

Request from the chancel choir to the congregation: smile!

Thank you to the young lady on a bicycle  who stopped and helped a man in a wheel chair on  Valley Street who was stuck in a hole. This is what I consider to be a Christian.

Thank you to the Scoop on Northside Drive. Valdosta needs more establishments like them. They went out of their way to help me on Thursday morning and I thank them. Thank you to the Scoop.

I was at Walmart Friday night and decided to buy my dog food first and was short of change and this nice, young man Brian decided to buy my groceries for me. It was the nicest gesture in the world for him to do that. Thank you, Brian, you are a gentleman. Thank you!

I want to thank all of my friends (ANGELS) in the local area for their kindness. Our home was recently vandalized and destroyed by some trespassers. The situation has caused our family great stress and grief. Thankfully the kindness of others has helped us to recover our home and hearts from the event. I will never forget the love you have shown our family. May God bless all of you.
