Thanks from the Lemery Family
The Lemery family would like to thank the Averett Family for the cards, food, prayers and support during Steve's bout with lung cancer during the fall of 2009. Your many kindnesses helped us enormously. Though he tired easily, the fact that Steve is now back teaching full-time seems like nothing short of a miracle, and we are so grateful.

Truly, through your support, you have enriched our understanding of the meaning of the word "family." Thank you from the bottom of our hearts (and lungs ;-)).

Most sincerely, Steve and Linda Lemery
