Last but not least I would like to remember our troops and their families during this season.I know all too well as a former military dependent what it's like to be without a loved one at Christmas.I would like to extend my best wishes and prayers to my friend Suezette and her family!She has sent her husband a mini tree with the decorations for him to put up and wrapped all his supplies toothpaste,chocolates,food etc up so he has something to unwrap on Christmas!
