Military Families Express Thanks

When asked ‘where do you want to go on vacation?’


I thought…and thought and answered:


Hines Fisher House!

Not for the fun and games
which were great but for the camaraderie – mutual trust
and friendship among people
who spend a lot of time
together…

Thank You…
You have left a footprint on my heart
