Instilling a lasting legacy

Dear Editor,

I am very thankful that myself and four siblings were raised in the 1930’s and we had parents that instilled in us respect, compassion, love, an honest day’s work and to help others. Word of mouth was golden. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

As this holiday season approaches my hope is everyone will come out and support Food Drive and Toys for Tots and other programs for the less fortunate. My legacy to my children, grand children and great grand children is that they will always show love, respect and compassion for those less fortunate, the same values that were instilled of us as children.
