Happy 4th of July

This year is different-sad. I'm sure you all have heard of 19th firefighters we lost in the state of Arizona last Sunday. So devastating!

My company has had a 20 year relationship with the Arizona Forest Service. We bring food to them. I have the privilege of being the one to coordinate and take those calls. As with fire they are sporadic and unpredictable . They normally come in late at night, I then I have to wake my kitchens up. But it is always our honor.

We drove 3 meals up to Prescott this weekend. The hardest was of course Monday morning. The firefighters were quiet, and there was tragedy in the air. But as always they were helpful and kind. You don't really know what to say in a situation like that except "thank you" which I did manage to muster up. But it was so sad up there. It is one of those experiences that you never forget.

My heart is with the friends and family of the fallen.

This 4th of July please take a moment to pray for all the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep us safe.
