It’s raining and cold outside today in May and the last several months have been just as dreary, but I’ve been thankful to live in Deer Park where the silver linings have never been brighter.

As some of you may know, the Deer Park Gazette is a family-owned newspaper. Ellie Chambers, our editor, is my sister. While preparing the January issue, our mother, Joan Schut, passed away.
