This is the first Thanksgiving that we will be celebrating without our beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother Ricki Stahl. (This photo was taken after her memorial service on November 5th, 2011 and includes my brother Brian and his wife Jan, as well as all the Stahl kids and grandkids.) But we have plenty to be thankful for and will definitely take time to appreciate and enjoy the family that are here to spend time with us. On behalf of my wife Mary and I, we would like to wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving celebration. Be kind to one another–even it’s as simple as holding a door open for a stranger or taking out the trash without being asked.
