Dear Friends,

It seems I just spoke about our welcoming the month of May and now we are near its completion.  This coming Monday we celebrate our nation’s Memorial Day.  We gratefully, as Americans, recognize the commitment of America’s military services, honoring those who lost their lives while defending their country.
