Community can be family too

It’s been said that family is not necessarily blood, it can be the community one lives in.

Dear Editor,

It’s been said that family is not necessarily blood, it can be the community one lives in. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank my family. For all those who have brought me kindling and wood, and helped to pile it in my shed.

For those who have given me work and credit and helped out financially when I needed it. For those who have fixed my car, my TV, tilled my garden, picked my fruit trees. For those who remember my birthday, invite me to Christmas dinner, give me fish, cut my meat, and bring me groceries when I’m sick.

For putting in my electric fence and freight my hens in. For giving me lamb and doing my hair, and a special thank you to those who have given me my dogs to love. Last, but not least, to our caring doctors. I am so very, very grateful.
