I’d like to express sympathy to LeeAnn Arden and her family who had a sad week due to the passing of George Arden.
I and my children have spent a lot of time with LeeAnn and her family and through that time, it’s easy to see what a dedicated husband and father George was.
Your friends and family across the district all send you our caring thoughts and concern during this difficult time.

Robin’s 2¢:
I don’t know about the rest of you parents reading this, but I can certainly relate to this!
Before you were born, your parents weren’t as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes, and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were.
So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parents’ generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.
