A holiday reminder

Dear Editor:This time of year is very busy for everyone. It is filled with shopping, baking, decorating and get-togethers with friends and family.I would like to remind everyone that not all of us will have our loved ones home for the holidays. We still have many men and women serving overseas in Iraq and Afghanistan. Children will not have their mother or father home with them. Husbands and wives will be apart from each other. Parents will have an empty space at the table where their son and/or daughter should be. Our daughter, Jennifer, is one of the Marines that will be spending her Christmas in Iraq.So as you begin your holiday celebrations with your loved ones, please keep all those that cannot be home for the holidays in your thoughts and prayers. Remember their families and how difficult it is for them. And above all, remember that it is because of all of them, their selflessness, dedication and sacrifices that we have the freedom to celebrate Christmas any way we so choose without fear.Merry Christmas to you and yours.Larry and Cindy EstradaGlenwood Springs
