First, I want to thank my God. Through Jesus Christ I have found eternal life to be a reality. Since 1936 Jesus has been my savior, guide, helper, friend and loving companion. He is totally sufficient for all things in life-and in death. I want to thank all my relatives and friends should know Him personally. He has given me a wonderful, wonderful life on this earth-and now heaven.

Secondly, I want to thank my wife Maxine. She has been a faithful, loving and delightful companion for most of my earthly life. She has been more than true to our marriage vows. She has loved me when I have been most unlovable, wicked and mean. She has cared for me in health, nursed me in sickness, comforted me in adversity. She has been a good wife to me and a good mother to our children. She has my unspeakable gratitude.

Third, I want to thank my children, Cheryl Lynn and Joe Blake (Pete) and their families. They have all been a joy and delight to me and the source of great satisfaction and happiness. They have been wonderful children and true friends. The knowledge that they know and serve my Lord, Jesus, gives me a sense of peace and satisfaction.

Fourth, I want to thank my relatives. Mother loved me, guided me and always inspired me. Words are inadequate to describe my sense of love and gratitude for her. My appreciation for my father has grown through the years. He was a good man and a good father. He worked hard and provided for his family during those terrible days of the depression the 1930's He has my great respect and appreciation-and now I can tell him so personally! Frances and Wes and their families have provided me a sense of stability that I needed. I appreciate their kindnesses, their help and the fact that they have been family to me. They have made my pilgrimage easier and much ore pleasant and happy.

finally, I must express gratitude for the churches that sustained me through the years, the Home Mission Board that provided a base of operation for me to do the work my Lord wanted me to do, and to the many, many wonderful friends that have surrounded me throughout the years.

I thank you all, knowing that only Lord Jesus and eternity can reveal to you my depth of gratitude.
