Sympathy to all of the families who lost a loved one recently. Our heartfelt prayers and good wishes go out to all of you in your time of need. You have our deepest sympathy.

Thought for the week: Whatever you decide to do, make sure it makes you happy.


Trust is like a mirror, once it’s broken it’s never the same. Without trust, you have nothing. Never trust someone who wouldn’t stand up for you. It’s hard to trust another person after you’ve been betrayed by the one you trusted the most.

Never lie to someone who trusts you. Never trust someone who lies to you. Before lying to one who trusts you, remember one of the most difficult things to do is to build trust after it has been broken.
