With respect to whom we lost this year, I offer my continued condolences to the families. Especially remembering very special cousins:

Clyde McDaniel Jr

James H Rowland Jr

2021 has been a year of many challenges for many people. Honestly, it is a leisure to pause and reflect about family history while so much about is in a whirlwind.

Even so, with the present being in clear focus, the past being a salient memory, and the future being a hopeful dream, we continue. This is our situation.

Happy New Year!
