With A Heavy Heart

Lagniappe this week lost a staff member and a dear friend. After two years of working at Lagniappe, Meri Spencer has returned to her home in Wisconsin to finish college. Enclosed is her letter which was left behind for us…

“I would just like to thank everyone at Lagniappe for making me feel at home these past two years I have been down here. I can’t believe this day is here! I can’t believe I am leaving! It seems like yesterday my mom, aunt and myself drove up to this place. I think about those first few days and compare it to now and how much has changed. Y’all have done great thing for this community as well as myself! You have given me a home unlike any other. A home full of friends, laughter, and fun. Y’all have given me prayer and support when things got rough as well and I would like to thank you so very much! I AM coming back as soon as possible, but until then I pray that the Lord will keep this place going stronger than ever. I can not say THANK YOU enough! God bless, Meri Spencer”

From all of the staff at Lagniappe to Meri, you shall miss you. You will be in our thoughts and prayers and we wish you the best of luck with college. May God truly bless.
