Dear Editor:

Wow! My response to the outpouring of love from our Savanna community and beyond

Wow! To all of those who so generously gave to florist Samantha Ritchie at River Valley Designs, creative and oh, so beautiful floral arrangements. All so that I would have the joy of receiving one, my fellow residents also delighted in one too. There is nothing like being the recipient of real flowers.

Elkay Manufacturing Co. and First Presbyterian Church, Presbyterian women gifts of holiday candies, cookies and cake. Again there is nothing like homemade pastries.

And to lift ones spirit in song, carolers from St. Peter Lutheran Church, Pastor Dan Foelske, getting us back in touch with the reason to celebrate.

Privileged that they chose to sing at our residence for they had several other sites too. How did they do it all?!

Just like Santa making stops on his route, Santa Ron topped off the Christmas holiday stopped by to dispense gifts provided by JoEllen McCaskey, manager, Pinnacle Place and her elves, co-workers, to each resident.

Oh how blessed we are for taking the time and effort to share your love and give us at Pinnacle Placeā€”a Christmas like none other. We will not forget you. God bless you

Juanita R. Randklev
