I hope this letter finds you, your family and your friends well. Ordinarily, this is such a joyful time when we gather with loved ones and celebrate the gifts bestowed upon us throughout the year while looking forward with anticipation to the new year with all its possibilities.
This one has been different. Many of us have had to work harder sorting our gifts from the harsh reality of difficult experiences forced upon us by the pandemic. I realize many of you could be better.
