Christmas 2008 is here and gone. I feel so blessed to have such a loving family. We had a wonderdul day visiting, eating, and opening presents. I only hope that the new year will continue to be a time of happiness and success for my family. I always take time to remember Dad and how much he would enjoy spending time with his children and grandchildren during the holidays. His spirit lives on in each of us and he will always be a part of our Christmas memories. To all of my friends and family reading this, I say Merry Christmas and thank you for being a part of my life.
