Thanks from the Wettstein’s - A very heartfelt thank you to you all. We have forever been humbled by the love showered upon us during Andy’s illness and continued recovery. While our days were filled with so much uncertainty, God had Andy’s life and health in the palm of his hand. We are thankful for the medical professionals, family, and friends that have come alongside us and continue to shower us with love. We have felt your prayers. We know our God is big and powerful, as he gave Andy one of the most amazing experiences, and that was to hear your prayers. Once again, thank you for the continued prayers and support.
With Love - Andy, Rebekah, Aylee, Mya, and Lincoln Wettstein
