A Christmas Wish for 2012

Industry Observer



This December has been one touched by more violence than I can remember; except maybe the downing of the Pan Am plane many years ago. Some of the violence includes; the loss of our friend, the senseless loss of Sandy Hook, the deaths of the firemen in New York and here locally the death of a Bellaire police officer.

       More than anything this year I pray for Peace on Earth. My heart is very heavy with all these losses. I hope the New Year brings all of us a sense of peace and love to our fellow man.

       I hope you and your families have had a wonderful Holiday Season!

Happy holidays to you and your family, Yolanda. This Christmas is really hard to so many. Besides the above, we're locally hit by the shooting at the Clackamas mall.

Yolanda I use to work across the street from the Gulf Building.  I don't know what they call it now. That Christmas tree looks like mine! Except that I am using aqua colored ornaments along with the silver!

Old memories...thanks!
