To our military heroes and their families. . .

We say "thank you" from the bottom of our hearts!! You have sacrificed so much, some even your own life, so that we could live in freedom in our great land. We salute you!!

Dear friends, enjoy your Memorial Day weekend as we think of our brave men and women who have so proudly served. I am proud to say that I am the mother of two veterans, Jeremy (US Navy) and Aaron (US Army). Love and blessings to you all.
