Garcian, a poet and philosopher who lived in the 1600’s once said, “True friendship multiplies the good in life and divides its evils. Strive to have friends, for life without friends is like life on a desert island”
Not much has changed. We still treasure our friends and the richness and vibrancy they bring to our lives.

Friends are important year round, but this week gives us the chance to send a tangible expression of our affection, gratitude, loyalty and more. Who in your life do you want to see smile?
