Words are very precious to a verse, book, and to the person.  When someone you care very deeply about is hurting you sometimes cannot find the words to express your deepest sorrow.  When someone you love has moved your heart, words are hard to find.  Sometimes “Thank You” is all someone can say when others have done something to comfort, love, or to help you.  THANK YOU is what the Friends of the Library would like to say to all the people who have worked, shared, donated and/or helped with the Spring Tea and auctions.  Over $4000.00 was made.  This community has shown amazing support at this event …and thank you just seems to be the most perfect words.
