My name is Mildred "Chicken Lady" Ely. On Sept. 11 of this year, I will turn 91 years old. Just more than a year ago, my property was condemned and I was forced to move with nowhere to go. Fortunately, some kind and caring people heard of my needs and moved quickly to assist me.
Space will not allow me to tell my story, so this letter is an attempt to thank as many of those who helped me as possible. I know I will overlook some, because I can't recall all of the many who came to my aid. This letter is an effort to thank as many as I can.
Some of the many are: Bible Cathedral and friends; David Huguenin; Tim Custer; Jerry Pittman; Ken Cooter; Duane Hughes; Jerry Bigham of Maner Builders Supply; Mulherin Lumber Co.; Reliable Rentals; Joey Brush of Brush and Company, and many of their subcontractors; Leroy Minyard of Minyard Electrical Co.; and so many, many others that I can't recall or have never met.
I ask those whom I have overlooked to forgive me, but to please accept my sincere gratitude and appreciation.
Thanks to them, I now have a lovely place to call home. Thank you, and thank you again. God bless each and every one of you.
