Card of Thanks from Victoria Pike

Thank you for the many kindnesses and expressions of sympathy shown during the passing of my husband, Gary Pike, and my mother, Gertrude Browning in the last two months.

This was a most difficult time but I have made it through with the help of good friends, family, neighbors. I was able to keep the cattle through this time with the help of my farmer friends and many of the members of the Adair Co. Cattlemen's Association. Neighbor helping neighbor as it was when I was a child. Also, to Intrepid Home Health and their nursing staff who were here almost every day of the last year and a half. They became family.

I am beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel and small town Columbia is still about the best place on the planet to live.

So thank you to all who were there when I need a friend. I have tried to get cards out but if I missed anyone, your kindness will never be forgotten. Vicky Browning Pike --Victoria Pike
