Web letter: Remember homeless, shut-ins during holidays

The holiday season is here, and there are many people in various senior homes, assisted living centers and hospitals. Please visit them, whether related or not.

Please bring a little joy to their lonely lives (cookies help), stay awhile, tell them what is going on in your lives. But don’t make promises you know you’re not going to keep. That devastates them. They know you’re lying, too.

It’s Christmas, and we should celebrate Christ’s birth as we all come together to share this joy. And do not forget our homeless. There are many more who need our support as well, and as my late father would say, they are “too numerous to mention.” In this instance, though, for the most part, they gave very much of their lives for you. Now is the time to give back.
