A Letter from M.J. Rountree

December 2016M.J. Rountree

Dear Nassau Presbyterian Church:

Today I went to work and returned to my new apartment; I am experiencing freedom in a real way. NPC members should know that the donated gifts leave me nearly speechless. Thank you from the deepest inner place of my being for giving me the opportunity to experience and enjoy life.

“Thank you” is not enough, but it’s all that I can say. I dearly appreciate everyone’s contributions, attempts, gestures, acts, generosity, and hospitality.  Thank you – every single one.

Marshall Justice Rountree
