HELLO FROM SHARI - April 24, 2020

Spring is such a beautiful and wonderful time of year. We treasure the warmth of bright sunshine, chasing away winter’s cold…colorful daffodils and other flowers nodding in gentle breezes…birds perched in the trees, singing their feathery symphony…the pungent smell of earth being plowed up by farmers for another year’s planting and harvesting…

Along with Spring comes Spring storms. Thunder growling in the distance…lightning flashing long, jagged marks across the skies…rain, and sometimes hail, coming as nature’s visitors who are not always welcome...

In Springtime, as we savor the special beauty of this season, we can also look forward to life after the storms. For the storms of Springtime, and of life, do always end. Though we are now in the midst of a world-wide type of storm with the Coronavirus pandemic, we know that this, too, shall pass. We look ahead to better days and the return of normalcy in our lives as we wait for this storm to run its course.

There are many resources available at SKIL to help you through this stormy time in our lives. We have abundant information on both our website and our Facebook pages. Please read them often. We are also available via telephone, e-mail, fax and other social media.

Last week we also started offering a free emergency Mercy Box. It will be available outside the front door of several of our offices Monday through Friday during the day of our work week. The Mercy Box contains food and other essential necessities. Please take what you need and give what you can. There is no requirement to give or pay anything to take items from the Mercy Box. It is there for you.

We are here for you, to help you navigate the mazes that this pandemic has brought us. Thank you for being our customers and friends. We appreciate every single one of you! Please let us know how we can be of good assistance and encouragement during this time.

I love you all, Shari
