Today we have lost a third nursing home resident to this horrible virus, and have a newly diagnosed (non-Aaron Manor and non-elderly) resident with COVID-19. Our loving thoughts go to the family who is suffering this deep loss, and best healing wishes to all who are fighting to regain their health. A not so welcome reminder to protect ourselves and our families to the best of our abilities, and that, even though this is a difficult time, we will get through this together. Don't forget to check on your neighbors, support our merchants where you can, and give of your time or resources to help those in need.
