|On September 10th we traveled to KC and Jeremy participated in the KC 9/11 Memorial Stairclimb. He, along with 342 other fire-fighters, climbed 110 flights of stairs. The same number of flights that were in the World Trade Center. It was supposed to simulate finishing the climb for those 373 that lost their lives in the 9/11 attack. It was beautiful and moving tribute we were honored to be apart of it.|

We continue to be blessed with good health and thank God everyday for that. We continue to pray for our friends and family that are fighting ongoing health battles, especially Jeremy's God-mother/Aunt Shirley who has sarcoma and our nephew Gavin who goes head to head with Type-1 diabetes every day/hour/minute.
Once again, I reflect back on the year, and go through our Christmas card list, and think it has been a while since I've seen so many people and would love to see them soon. I am grateful for social media to keep up on pictures and what's going on in peoples lives, however nothing beats sitting in the same room with them! I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a blessed 2018!
