A very special thanks to all who participated in the special care of our loved one, Sis. Thelma A. Sango. To Dr. Tawakina and the staff at EASTAR Health System, especially the nurses in I.C.U. and those assigned to her room on the third floor. Mere words can’t express our feelings for you. The providers that cared for her at home, you will always hold a special place in our hearts.

When the end came, the Rev. Gary Hall and all the beautiful members of First Loving Mount Calvary were right there. To her special friends and ours, to Dr. Marlon Coleman and the Antioch congregation, the special singers, Sis. Martha Thomas, the Rev. Jerry Washington, the Mt. Calvary Brotherhood singers, and to all who called, visited, sent cards, gave food, money, flowers and prayers. We appreciate you so very much, and the ministries. You all will be in our prayers.
