Since Covid shelter in place started nearly two months ago we, like most families, have had to adjust to remote working, schooling and community engagement.


These changes are minor in comparison to those who have suffered loss of life or are struggling financially. Thankfully our family and friends have remained healthy, but our hearts go out to those that have suffered.
