    Subject: My Beloved Horse "Doc" Message: Boy I'm just not sure where to start, but I guess I should start by saying a huge heartfelt thank you to Deb Summers, she was such a huge help in making cremation arrangements for my beloved Quarter Horse "Doc". Doc has been a part of our family since 1997, we purchased her locally and she was only 3 years old and she was a huge part of our family and our lives. She developed colic, which is a serious ailment that horses can get and most times it can easily be handled with the help of a vet and medicine. Doc developed colic on Monday afternoon we immediately called the vet and had her/him come to the farm. We were up with her all night long and the vet said to call if she wasn't better by early am. Well she wasn't better and was in alot of pain so called vet at 6 am he came back out gave her another exam gave her medicine said if she wasn't passing stool by 10:30 am we should prepare to take her to OSU Equine Vet Hospital in Columbus. That was what we did and the OSU team were excellent they helped us to get her unloaded and immediately took us to ICU for Equines. After x-rays ultrasound and blood tests Dr. Rings suggested we allow them to do surgery so they could find out exactly what was wrong. They did the surgery and after 2 hours they gave us our options and they were not good. 15 feet of her small intestine had died and she was full of toxins from the dead intestines. They were having trouble keeping her blood pressure up but if we wanted they could remove bad intestines and reconnect her small bowel and hope that it would heal without anymore problems. Now came the hard part I had to decide whether to allow them to continue or if I chose I could let her go. My choice was not easy but I had to think of her and I decided to let her go. It was hearbreaking and I still have my crying spells but I do believe it was the right choice. Now that is where Deb comes in I had called the office because I know Eric and he had told me about their pet cremations but I wasn't sure how or what they considered "PETS". Anyway I called the office and they told me they would have Deb Summers get in touch with me, she did about 20 minutes later and gave me information about the cremation options that were available. She was very compassionate and understanding and oh so helpful. God Bless you Deb for helping me and Donn through such a difficult time with the loss of our Doc. Eric you have a keeper here she is such an asset to your organization and I want you to know I would recommend you folks to any of my fellow horse owners. We never want to have this happen but it does and with the compassion and helpfulness Deb showed to us I know any of my fellow horse owners would be very happy with your services. Thank you and God Bless you for having these services for our Fur Babies. Sincerely, Becky Clifton.

    I want to thank each and every one if you for generous support again this year of the 2016 MATT LIGHT FOOTBALL CAMP. I doubt I can properly express my appreciation for your financial support each year of the unique football camp. This is the only camp of its kind in the surrounding area that is offered at no cost to the athletes. I am very proud to be able to offer this camp to the youth of Greenville, Darke County, and the surrounding countries. It is unusual to provide young kids a free two-day camp that includes structure, excellent coaching, and positive direction. As usual, Matt Light was present for both days of the camp. Matt had some inspiring and motiving words for the campers, and the kids responded positively to his presence and advice. Let me not fail to mention, we have 18 area football coaches (mot are varsity assistants or head coaches)who take time from their busy summer schedules to eagerly work this camp. Let me remind you this is the only camp many of these kids will get to attend, simple because it is free. This concept is only possible through the generosity if the business people of Greenville and Darke County. The true meaning of t "giving back" is demonstrated by the good businessmen, businesswomen of Greenville and Darke County supporting the unique concept of a free football camp. This year, the 23rd year, we had another great turnout for the camp-185 campers! I hope to continue the camp again in 2017 for the 24nd Annual Matt Light Football Camp. It is my Hope that I can count on your support next year. Respectfully, Larry E. Master

    I greatly appreciate and want to thank you for your donation to our care ministry. Your generosity will help us care for the many congregants here at EUM Church. This truly is a blessing and will allow us to be able to help others in many different ways. Examples of these uses are: funeral meals, care bags for shut-ins and the purchasing of materials to provide help to those who have lost a loved one and are grieving. I will pray the God continues to bless your business and again a very heartfelt thank you. Luke 6:38: Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with measure you use, it will be measured to you. Sincerely, Rev. Don Smith Care Pastor EUM Church

  • This past year was my seventh year showing pigs through Banner Bound 4H Club. I picked out two pigs in the spring; a light crossbred named Henry and a dark crossbred named Thumbs. i worked with them all summer trying to get them ready for the fair. This included walking them, keeping their pens clean, washing them and feeding them, Although I worked as hard as I could this past year, i ran into more obstacles than usual. Last year was a learning experience and i had a lot of fun doing and learning new things. I would like to take this time and thank you for your support this past year at the Great Darke County Fair. You helped to make this last year memorable. i hope to see you again next year, thank you, again.
