countless long weekends and Holidays visiting with our family here. We feel like we have always
had a place in this town. Each time I drive in on Middle Road I pass the water tower that says
"You Belong in Prince George." Each trip I feel a little bit more like we belong. Now I am
thankful that we get a chance to raise our daughter Reagan and son Will in a wonderful place,
surrounded by so many sweet and special people. We are looking forward to the challenge of
