October 2, 2009 Waterfall Wedding & Princess Reception for Shannon Clark & Scott Shumsky

Dear Dr. Nease,

This note is way past due. We want to Thank-You for performing our son Scott Shumsky's wedding ceremony on October 2nd, 2009. It truly was a God honoring ceremony. God was acknowledged and mentioned several times during the ceremony.

We attended two weddings this summer where there was no acknowledgement of God and His wonderful creation of marriage. It was very sad.

We were so happy with how you conducted this special event for Scott and Shannon. You have a wonderful center there and everyone was very helpful and great to work with.

Thank you so much. May God richly bless you and Mrs. Nease as you carry on your ministry at Coles Garden.

Mike & Cindy Shumsky
Allen, Texas
