Scott, happy what would have been 49th birthday. We do lots of extra special things in January as special memories and inclusion of villages. On Jan 20 we had another very successful blood drive and organ donor signup. On Jan 27 the Lacey Youth Memorial Scott Stevens Tournament was a huge success. While Scottie has outgrown the age limits; he was part of the representatives of his wrestling team volunteering at the event. How very proud you can be of the young man he is. While Dawn has a big part there is also a very large village with ongoing care & love. Lots of love & hugs. Dad & Mom
