During this difficult time we should think of others, because if we do others will think of us. We are all in this together and helping each other is what this country is really good at. We are thankful for the clinicians, the grocery clerk to everyone who is contributing to overcome this terrible virus. We are sad for all those who are suffering or have lost a loved one. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. During this time remember to do good, show love and be kind. As examples, our family has delivered care packages to our neighbors leaving them on their front porch. Adhering to social distancing, we leave care packages for those that are in need. We disinfect these items that we donate and leave these packages when we can afford to. We offer others our assistance when we can. Please watch over our elderly and vulnerable. My family visits our grandparents every week and talk to them from our car while they sit on their porch. It is important to have human interaction. Just having a conversation about something positive is important. Brighten up someone’s day and together we will lift the gloom that hangs over us. This adversity will pass like so many other obstacles we have overcome. My dad says, you cannot appreciate the good unless you have experienced the bad. Keep your gaze forward and do not look back, our best days are ahead of us.

Samantha, (and the Hall Family)
