Thanksgiving is a time for reflection. What ... Who .. are you thankful for?
I know that I'm thankful for my family. This Thanksgiving I'll look around the dinner table and be lucky enough to see my Mother, healthy and still enjoying life. I'll also see my wife, our 2 sons, 2 wonderful daughters-in-law, and the bright and beautiful faces of our 3 grandchildren ... Henry, Marilyn, and little Eva Mae.
I'm also thankful for the business relationship you and I have established. I'm grateful that we've had the chance to get to know one another and work together. I hope you feel the same.
I send you my Best Wishes for a Thanksgiving filled with much joy and peace. A day surrounded by warmth, love, and all those you hold dear ...
