    Hello everyone. I hope all of you are getting in the Christmas spirit and remember the reason for the season.

    It’s a time to remember all the loved ones who have passed on, the sick, the homeless, the little children who have no one to love them or care for them, the ones in the nursing homes, our soldiers, men and women, who serve for our freedom. There is so much to remember and be thankful for. I hope through this season we can remember all the good things and help out the ones who are not so blessed.
