Y'all are mighty, marvelous, and magnificent. I truly believe in the concept that there's no such thing as an indispensable individual in an organization. You, and especially your leadership team, have recently proven that. I have been away and occupied with my little Mama's most recent health crisis and with closing out her apartment (lots of bits of paper as well as many other mementos). BCMG hasn't slowed in any way that I know. Y'all are better than the legendary postal carrier. You have my greatest admiration and appreciation. Thank you.
We are almost half way through this year and have done well. The warm weather which I so appreciate is finally here. Keep on gardening, but do be careful. Stay hydrated, avoid the blood suckers, and protect yourselves from over exposure to the sun.
