As the year past us begins to fade, the beginning of a new year presents us with opportunities to both assess the past and establish goals for the future. 2012 was particularly difficult for us; we had to say final goodbyes to many companions. To all who left us last year, we loved you and we cried for you and we will miss you dearly. You will be in our hearts forever. But we're optimists at heart. The past year also brought us many new friends, and we know 2013 will bring us even more. We look forward to coming up with new ways to improve on the care and comfort that we provide. We hope and wish for you and your family a healthy and happy 2013.
