To First Baptist Church, Paris
It is with a deep sense of gratitude for this church family, but also with a heavy heart, that I write to you to announce my official retirement as Administrative Assistant of First Baptist Church, Paris, Tenn., effective June 30, 2017. I am now at retirement age, and after 21-plus years as your Administrative Assistant, I have decided that it is now the right time to retire from the work place and concentrate on other interests.
I would like to thank you for the wonderful experience you have given me working for the church. I have enjoyed my work here with all of you. Thank you for the support, guidance and encouragement you have provided me during my time at First Baptist Church. I have made so many friends in Christ and I have come to love all of you. I can truly say that my leaving the workplace feels as though I am leaving family, and that is a good thing! You have been a blessing to me and my family. I pray that I have served this congregation and our Lord Jesus in a pleasing and honorable way.
Until my retirement date, I will work to make the transition as smooth as possible for the church office and for this church. 
God bless each one of you and God bless First Baptist Church.
                                                                                          In Christian love,
                                                                                          Anita Peale
