My holiday wishes:
It didn't matter how difficult the year had been, my mother always made the holiday season one of the happiest and most enjoyable. Since my mother's death, I've managed to keep that spirit alive in our family and I wish the same joy and happiness for yours. Times are tough and we all have to sacrifice, but the holidays and what they stand for remains.
