Goodbye

Five and a bit years ago I took my first, apprehensive steps into Uplyme Church. Apprehensive because I didn’t know then what I know now: that Uplyme Church is filled with the kindest people with the warmest hearts. It is sad to say goodbye, but it is more of a fond farewell and “see you around” as I am not going far. But, for now, my work here is done and I am venturing off to cause chaos in someone else’s office; and if the people are half as nice as the funny, compassionate and generous people here, I will consider myself so very lucky.

Goodbye and all my love,

Fran
