With Thanksgiving still in our minds and Christmas upon us, I have been pondering the contributions made by so many Utahns for so many years. Dick Nourse was a constant of courtesy and professionalism in a rapidly changing communications world. Sen. Ed Mayne, a champion for the people. John Longhurst often elevated our thoughts through the sublime gift of music. We all have our lists that grow longer as we age.

This is a season to draw the people you know closer to you and let them know they are loved and appreciated.

Do it now.
