OUR RESPONSE TO COVID-19 Quite unexpectantly, our lives have all changed.  We are celebrating 25 years of business, and we've weathered quite a few storms:  9/11 in 2001, our son's accident in 2005, the economic recession from 2008-2014, and now a worldwide pandemic.  The one thing that has always remained constant in our lives is Jesus!  He is the same yesterday, today, and forever; and, we will hold on to that truth.  "You don't have any troubles, all you need is faith in God."  - R.W....
