This decision has been one that we have struggled back and forth with for weeks and it all comes down to this:
We have had an amazing 11 years full of love, growth, graduations, proposals, first dates that have led to marriages, we have raised so many kids, we have hugged so many broken hearts, celebrated so many birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, celebrated beautiful lives and it has been such a blessing to be part of this journey and make all of these new friends and create a bigger family.
We want to take all those wonderful memories and remember what a community we were before covid-19. We are not a drive-through, we are a community where people come to hang out for hours with their best friends, play board games, chess, cards, mahjong, have bible studies, meet up groups, or just to sit and all be together supporting each other through hard times and great times. A place where some people came 7 days a week to see friends who became a family. A place where we had huge concerts on the patio with dinners, painting parties, music events, etc. All of which were full of lots of people in close quarters.
Our world has changed and we have decided to move a different way and start a new chapter in our lives. We can't thank each and every one of you enough for all the love and support you have given us. So many of you have been with us the entire time and you mean the world to us. We will miss you all so much but we know our paths will cross again in other areas. We wish you all health, happiness, and many blessings.
Much love, hugs and memories to all!
