In Memory

I just wanted to say Merry Christmas Mom and Dad. I miss you guys very much. The holidays just do not seem the same without you. I think about you everyday. Thank you for everything. I appreciate it so much. My mom’s brothers passed away this year to which they hold a special place in my heart. Merry Christmas to all of Livingston and Overton County. To my family, this is a place they, as well as I, call home.
