Thanksgiving Day

To all of our wonderful family we express thanks and appreciation for each and everyone of you. The Lord has truly blessed all of us in many ways and given understanding to our lives.
Mother and I have been married 62 years and during that time we find that our greatest blessings are the joys you have brought into our lives on a daily basis.
Someone said we should be thankful for the difficult times. During those times we grow. Be thankful for each new challenge because it will build your strength and character.
We are thankful for each other and for our parents who have sacrificed much and overlooked our weaknesses and taught the principle of forgiveness.
We are thankful to our Father in Heaven and the atoning sacrifice of His only begotten Son so that we may enjoy eternal life because He is our Redeemer.
We hope that you have a wonderful time on this memorable day of Thanksgiving which is also comemorative of the day that we were married and began life together and now we have this wonderful family lovely children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Thanks Be To God is what President Gordon B. Hinckley always said and we also say that.
Make every day a day of Thanks.
We love you.
John & Joyce Sonnenberg
