Jacquie Howell, Diocesan ACW President, has returned home to Huntsville following a very eventful trip to New Zealand accompanying her granddaughter, Dara, who was competing in the NZ Winter Games. While there, Jacquie underwent emergency surgery for a shoulder replacement following an accident. She is recovering well but has a long journey ahead.
Jacquie expresses her deepest gratitude for all the love and thoughts and prayers received by her and her family during this difficult time. She is extremely thankful for the care received in New Zealand and for the blessing of Sister Mary (Sisters of Mercy) who took care of Jacquie following her release from hospital until her flight back home was approved and arranged.
