Pictured above with me is our dear friend, Louis. He came into our lives the first year after moving the store to Lee's Summit. We always enjoy conversation, and the goodness of God is among our favorite topics. We've encouraged and prayed each other through some challenging times, and our friendship has been forged through these shared experiences. One of his favorite phrases is "C'mon, Man!" It's a great one. I love it; so often applicable! We frequently discuss happenings in the world of sports, too...Here are some memorable examples of talk about such things: Remember the Royals in 2014, going all the way to game seven of The World Series? (Then winning it all in 2015!) How about that, Louis!?! "C'mon, Man!" And then, that Super Bowl a few years ago where Atlanta blew a multi-score lead in an eventual loss to the Patriots...Oh, yeah..."C'mmmonnn, Man!!" (We over-use it now, but it's fun!) These moments we sit down to share are filled with meaning and joy. You've heard it here before and I'll repeat it - serving you, getting to know (and be part of) your story and your life's occasions is a high honor. We humbly appreciate your friendship, loyalty, and trust. It wasn't ever "all about" the jewelry..."C'mon, Man!" It's about the relationships first.
Happy October! God bless you, Del
