This morning, as done every morning, Sherrin Stewart sends her team a quick email noting her schedule for the day… today was different and she shared a very touching email and familiar poem with us. We value Sherrin for her leadership, unrelenting work ethic, and tender heart.  This is what she shared…

Nov 11/11

To think of today and every day, with respect


In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row,

That mark our place; and in the sky

The larks, still bravely singing, fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.


We are the Dead.  Short days ago

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,

Loved and were loved, and now we lie

In Flanders  field.


Take up our quarrel with the foe:

To you from failing hands we throw

The torch; be yours to hold it high.

If ye break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

In Flanders fields

John McCrae

December 1915


Now I’m off to the Remembrance Day services.  Take a moment – it is important for all of us to respect and be thankful to those soldiers, men, women and families who gave so much of themselves for us and future generations.

 Thank you Sherrin for reminding us to pause and remember.
