Message Monday - How will you be remembered?


5-28 message mondayMemorial Day is a day to remember those who make the supreme sacrifice for our county. Those military members who served and died protecting our freedom and their family members are owed a huge debt of gratitude.

 But what about you? How will you be remembered? Please don’t forever be known as a person who died in a tragic crash that could have been prevented.


Help ensure your legacy. Doing so requires just a few easy steps:
