Dear Abernathy Family,

We truly appreciate receiving the Ralph David Abernathy Scholarship Funds.  It came at a great time to be used to purchase books for next semester.  WHAT MAKES LIFE GOOD: One of the good thngs of life that God has given is the family.  Parents and children, aunts and uncles, cousins and even friends are God's way of making us feel that we have a special place in the world, somewhere that we belong.  Just know that your acts of kindness are appreciated beyond words.
