To the editor:
My heart is broken. My friends, my family, and my Croton came to support the closing of my life’s dream. I can’t even begin to tell all of you how much the past 20 years have meant to me. I’ve watched your children come into the world and now, am welcoming them home as they begin their own adult lives in this awesome community, starting their own families and re-establishing their roots.
We’ve been blessed and touched by the love we’ve felt and friendships we’ve made here in this village. It’s never been about doing business, it’s been about living a life and providing a service to our community and giving back to that community. You have all been great, and we wish that we could keep it going. The pencil must hit the paper and as much as I have tried to throw the pencil out, it keeps placing itself in my hand.
We have had many years of success and we’ll focus on that. We wish you all the best and in our hearts, Croton will always be home…
