I want to reach out to all of those who may have an empty chair at their Thanksgiving table this year. A chair once occupied by a loving son or daughter. For them, this is a difficult time of year, the absence of their loved children thrown into the sharpest focus by the happiness of others. We can bring their spirits back into our homes by remembering them, talking about the wonderful times we had with them, even though that may move you to tears. Those tears are the tribute to the depth of your love. I wish everyone sailing that storm-tossed sea a window of peace today. Be grateful for your memories and the time you had with your beautiful children. It is the only lasting thing of them we have left.
