Card Of Thanks

The family of the late Sonja Watkins would like to thank the many friends and neighbors who visited, attended her service and who provided prayers and support to us during this most difficult time. For those who telephoned, traveled, sent floral tributes, cards and messages of condolences, we are truly grateful.

A special word of thanks to Dr. Cox and staff at the Livingston Clinic and Livingston Regional Hospital for their kindness and respect show at all times; to John Keigh and Denton Hummel for their many words of comfort; to Allons Baptist Church for the wonderful food; and to Bobbie Brown for the many meals she prepared for us, and for being a good friend and neighbor.

To those who helped in any way, your contribution made our loss more bearable. As it would be impossible to thank everyone individually, please accept this acknowledgement as an expression of our deepest gratitude.
