A heartfelt message to a very special Valley Home family, the Smith Family Tammie, Ronnie, Lainey, and Halley. Our deepest sympathy on the loss of Tammie's stepfather Bill Bossard. Tammie's mom Judy and Bill were always big supporters of all Valley Home events. Whether it was a church event, a community or school event for granddaughters Halley and Lainey, Bill and Judy were always happy to support all. Bill was a very caring man and will be forever missed by all who knew and loved him.

We offer a very heartfelt thank you to our firefighters and law enforcement! With the 4th of July holiday upon us we so much appreciate their dedication and hard work. Sadly the recent drownings in area waterways have them using their training and skills almost daily. With temperatures near 109 degrees, rivers and lake water running high, these dedicated men and women are on call 24/7 and have top notch training. They are the very best. We are grateful!

A peaceful paradise ... this past weekend our Valley Home School dinner fundraiser was held at the beautiful Borges Park. The park itself is the inspiration of Elsie and the late Augie Martin. Located on Henry Road in Farmington, the park is just a couple minutes' drive from Valley Home. Elsie and Augie's inspiration has allowed many, many groups to raise thousands of dollars to benefit their causes. Augie Martin was a humble, hard-working man, whose faith and family meant everything to him. During even the most spirited of gatherings, guests feel the peacefulness of their surroundings! Flowers, plants and ...

Excited youngsters gathered eagerly at our little community park early last Saturday morning! They soon noticed the tell-tale signs that the Easter Bunny had visited Valley Home! Peeking out from the wispy dew covered hiding places were bunches of bright, colorful Easter eggs. As they ran from one grassy hiding place to the next their laughter rang out like a joyful melody! The smiles of delight on their young faces would surely make our long ago community center and park founders proud. What a fun time the youngsters had as they raced to fill their Easter baskets.

A favorite saying was on my mind today as I wrote this week's column, "A grateful heart knows many joys." Over the years I have saved many of the 'all occasion cards' that folks have sent to me. One of my many favorites is displayed near where I write this column. Actually I keep several of those thoughtful cards in prominent places. Easy to catch a glimpse, easy to be inspired, easy to remember how much folks care. Always grateful! I hope each of you will let your worries, whatever they may be, let them go and enjoy the ...

How beautiful spring is in Valley Home! The sight of livestock grazing peacefully in lush green pastures, lovely white/pink almond blossoms as far as you can see, watching ever changing clouds as they float gently across a brilliant blue sky, hearing a mourning dove coo sweetly in a barn loft, we could go on and on. Such a special place, we are truly blessed to wake up in Valley Home each morning!
