Shirlee Says Thanks......

Dear Friends:

I want to thank all of you for your prayers,letters, cards, good wishes and encouragement since we learned less than two weeks ago that Tom has cancer.

Today he had surgery and it was very successful. Several lymph nodes were also involved and removed as well as the tumor. He has an excellent chance to live many more years with hormone therapy which will begin in a few weeks after he's recovered sufficiently.

I want to especially thank Michelle Burdick who walked us through the many tests, and meetings with the surgeon and for her continued concern, not only for Tom, but for me as well. She's a blessing and Charles Cole is very fortunate to have her on staff.

My two daughters, Anne and Nancy stayed with me throughout the day and are such treasures that it's hard to describe how lucky I am to have them. Tom's good friend, Paul Buchsen made our wait so much easier too, just by being there with us.

We've received literally dozens of calls in the past week and we're grateful for each and every one of them. It would be difficult to return all of them so I decided to write this note so you all will know that Tom is doing well and we hope and pray he will be with us for many years to come.

Again- many thanks and God Bless you all.

Shirlee Leete
