Sometimes, not often enough, we
reflect upon the good things and
those thoughts always center around
our friends. And I think about those
people- -who mean so much to me-
-and for so many years have made
me happy. And I count the times I
have forgotten to say "thank you".

                              Lori Ramsey

Today will be a pleasant memory...
tomorrow
because we cared enough to give
the only thing we have, ourselves.
