During the holiday season we often reflect on memories of events that define us as individuals and as family. Many times over our individual upbringings varied in support and atmosphere, thus fostering the entire spectrum of emotions that we see during the Christmas Holidays.

For some of us this season makes us miss someone, for others it is a celebration of a year to be grateful for, and for most it is a time of togetherness. It is my hope that message finds you and your family well, and it is my hope that you have an affectionate and compassionate celebration to close out the year.

Please take care, Merry Christmas, and enjoy the holidays!
