December 25, 2011 Merry Christmas and Pay It Forward!
Merry Christmas to all of my loyal customers, dedicated friends and supportive family!!
It is with such gratitude to all of you that I wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!! It has been a successful year beyond my wildest expectations. It would not have happened if it weren't for customers, past and new...friends always willing to help me...and family members who went above and beyond to support my efforts!!! It's very difficult to find the most effective words to thank you all. Thank you, thank you, thank you....
I pray that you have had a holiday filled with family togetherness. I also pray for many who have lost loved ones before these days of the Christmas season. Our community of Marion suffered tragic losses around Thanksgiving time which impacted many, many people. It certainly made us aware of how quickly people's lives can be changed forever. I will not forget this difficult acceptance of death, but rejoice in knowing all these friends are all in Heaven, watching over us. Their deaths and the loss of personal friends who died serving our country have made an impact that will remain with me the rest of my lifetime.
Love your family, hug them often and live each day as it should be. Stay positive and always strive to "pay it forward"....such a fulfilling, positive way to be.
Rest in Peace...Barbara, Ray, Ramie, Shey and Tripp....your memories are with me, forever.
Love to all of you, today and always.
