As February 14 arrives, cards, candy, flowers and special gifts have been purchased to give to a friend, sweetheart or soul mate.

As we look behind us at the end of 2018, there were smiles and tears. This poem was written by Joy Beth on December 29, 2017, just four months following Hurricane Harvey. So many lost everything.
