    An eerie reminder of how important our family and the time we spend with them really is. Our hearts go out to the families of those who lost loved ones. We wish we could do more for everyone that is at a loss from the storm. We will continue to pray the lord watches over and rebuilds the lives of those affected even stronger than before. If there is any way that we may help anyone out there that has found it impossible to find help getting back on their feet, please let us know. If not already, we will all see a day when help from others is needed. (910)862-4500

    My deepest sympathy, thoughts, and prayers to all the families suffering these tragic losses. And, this is just my opinion, but those of us that were spared from the storm should take the opportunity to gather our family and loved ones around us during this Easter season and give thanks.
