e understand this is a difficult and unsettling time for our country and our world. What distinguishes all of us is how well we support each other in uncertain and challenging times. Please know we are here for you and committed to assisting you in any way we can.
Our parents, grandparents and great-grandparents all faced very serious challenges – two World Wars within about twenty years, the Great Depression when 25% of Americans lost work, and the deadly influenza pandemic of 1918. They and their fellow citizens overcame all adversity to give us the great country we enjoy today, unaware they also helped lay the foundation for a world inspired to seek freedom, peace and progress.
In the image is my grandmother, Nellie Campbell Cisney, with her son Andrew upon his return home after World War II. She was an early 20th century pioneer woman, whose talents, tireless energy, and quiet unwavering faith provided everything her family needed through difficult times. We are fighting a different kind of war and know we will come through this stronger than ever.
Stay safe and be well.
With hope and confidence,
