I received a very touching email Saturday night from a man who used to dine at the VeryVera Cafe. He said that, while he was deployed in Afghanistan in 2012 and 2013, he sent a cake to himself to share with coworkers, and sent cakes to other friends serving along with him. This note reminded me that I should be thankful for the wonderful memories I created for so many people and for the memories we all create on a daily basis--none of us ever know the impact we have on others. It also reminded me how fortunate we are as citizens of the United States of America, so I want to take this opportunity to thank you, Capt. Chad Young, for your service to our country, and your service to us all. I am truly grateful.
