This is why we are in business…

Filed under: Florida News,Hidden Orlando,Just For Fun,Leisure |

Just occasionally you get a reminder about why you have been put on this planet and why it is your duty to serve others. Yesterday we were looking through the submissions to our “Friends Don’t Let Friends” competition and we found the story I’m going to share with you below.

It’s the story of a family that still comes together to celebrate life and it’s revealing…

“We believe that our Father and our Mother though they’ve passed away, are in heaven looking at us as we move from day to day.

They would love this idea of us coming together once or twice a year, to eat meals together, laugh with each other, and if need be shed a tear.

If they were alive they would appreciate you for being so gracious, allowing us to use this house that is very, very spacious.

In this house on Cumbrian Lakes Drive we’ve reflected on times gone by.

We’ve eaten meals together, laughed with each other, and have sometimes shed a tear.

We are sending you a picture of us. You’ll see we’ve placed the bandanna on an empty chair. This is where our departed sister would be standing if GOD had chosen to allow her to be here.

Our time here was nearly perfect, nearly perfect you see. The only reason it isn’t so is that we are missing those three.


Nellie (JC), Helen, Jennette, FannieK (Jesse), Luther (Mary)”

Thanks for the reminder guys…it’s good for all of us to treasure the life we have and to use it to serve others. Your gift card is on the way.

If you’d like more information on how you can enter our competition, share your story and maybe win a $50 gift card, please visit

We’ll be more than happy to send you your own “Friends Don’t Let Friends” bandana.

  1. What a wonderful story! More of us should stop and think like that and maybe life would be better for all those that we touch on a daily basis.
