Dear [Name], [Name] and not least, [Name],
Last night, I asked my 5-year old to make a list of all those whom she would like us to remember this Thanksgiving.
You guys were up there in her list with her granny, the Tooth Fairy and Santa Claus!
If I am the last to thank you for doing what you do for a living, I hope you can find it in you to forgive me!
I think it would have been better if I had said 'Thank you' instead of 'Happy Thanksgiving' over the years.
Thank you for keeping our neighborhood looking (and smelling!) great . . .
Thank you for taking pride in what you do despite the cold and the heat . . .
Thank you for putting your own health at risk for our benefit and that of your families . . .
Thank you for putting up with what you must think is our indifference . . .
If your beat takes you past our home this Thanksgiving, please look around near our mailbox. I hope you accept. It is a little something that our family would want you and your families to have.
Have a great Thanksgiving.
Thank you, guys.
