June 14 is Flag Day. The American Flag represents the greatest nation on Earth. Red symbolizes hardiness and valor; white is purity and innocence; and blue represents vigilance, perseverance and justice. We salute our flag and U.S. Troops. Thank you, veterans of yesterday, today and tomorrow. If you have a flag, fly it proudly. God bless America.
Father’s Day is this Sunday, June 16. It is a day set aside to honor the contributions that your father has made in your life. If your father is alive, I hope you will take the time to show him how much you appreciate him. Hopefully, warm memories will comfort the heart of those missing their father. I still miss my father, Thomas Greene (10-24-1903 to 08-02-1995). “A good father is one of the most unsung, unpraised, unnoticed and yet one of the most valuable assets in our society.” - Billy Graham

Once again, it is quiet around our place. Our grandson Kyle, Lacy and baby Keely Rose of La Porte, Ind., were here last week and so were Kyle’s parents, Terry and Jo Ellen. They enjoyed the country breakfast at Montezuma and the homecoming at the Center.
Have a great week!
