Abilene Premier Eye Care Building Dedication

November 23, 2020

Today is a special day for us, for our practice.

Through all the blood, sweat, and tears of these past months this project survived and came alive!

There are so many of you that have been there for me with suggestions and advice, but mostly to remind me to BREATH along the way.  You all were right – it was a big task to undertake alone, and even more so during a pandemic.

This is truly a testimony of God’s deliverance through lessons of perseverance and resilience.  I am humbled and grateful. I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to all of you.

It all started with a dream that seemed unreachable in the beginning.  However, God always connects you with special people on your journey. I would like to acknowledge Dr. Fred White and Dani Ramsey along with Russell Guthrie for believing in my vision and helping to get the project off the ground.

To Tommy, our builder, for listening to on-going requests and always reminding me “that it will cost more money!”

To Denise, who patiently worked with Dad and Darren who drafted our plans.

To my extended family in Abilene:

Betty and Bill, my special neighbors and friends, your support and unconditional love were my rock during the hard days.

To my friends Darren and Sue – words cannot express my gratitude for all your help – always there for me, one call away to solve any challenge but mostly to remind me to BREATH.  Thank You for the beautiful art for our office.

Roxana for working into the late hours of the night for required reports to the bank.

For my Abilene Premier Eye Care A-Team who worked tirelessly to move the office in three days and get organized for operation the following Monday.

I cannot forget my sweet Neeca, my biggest cheerleader throughout the construction and who is now smiling down from above with my sweet Mom – Miss them dearly!

To my best friends, Evie and Cliff, the best pastor in Abilene, for encouraging me and having patience to hear my worries

…and so many others that helped us.

 

YOU KNOW IT TAKES A WHOLE VILLAGE TO TAKE CARE OF ANCA!

 

To my strong family, my Dad, my sister Chris and my brother Tony, and my dear Godchildren for your encouragement, from many miles away, that all will be well in the end.

And for Max, for teaching me how important small blessings are, like
