The sun sets on February 26th…

The sun sets on another day…

The day was supposed to be full of snow, and it stayed lower in the state. The day was supposed to be cloudy, and it stayed sunny. It was supposed to be a lot of things, but what it was  made more sense. It was the birthday of Gary Samples.

Yeah, I have seen a lot of birthdays come and go and I try to reach out to most on social media. Today is special though, Gary does a lot and puts up with a lot. The Candy store he runs has high customer service because they know that customer service is what make a successful business. I have heard others state things about how they pull business but those people are too shallow to realize they pull business so the entire area can grow. The give high customer service because they server the area, and there is Gary, leading the way.

He has faced challenges I have no right to speak about, and overcome them. He has dealt with issues I have no right to say, and overcome them. Shallow people have tried to drag him down and he has risen above. I am proud to call him a friend, and know he would be there for me as I would for him, no matter what.

Happy Birthday Gary, and if you read this, know I was going to post a big collage of all the pictures I have of you, but suspected you would throw peanuts at me, so I will just leave today’s picture blank. I hope your birthday is and was as amazing as you are every day. I hope the people who frequent your business see the good in what you and Laureen do, and know that you are always supporting them. Make today yours, and see you soon.

Sleep sweet, have a happy birthday, and laugh some more…
