TTiis Friday is a wonderful chance for each of us to remember
someone we love with a card, a word, or a gift. This day, St.
Valentine's Day, is set aside each year for us to let those we love
know that we are thinking of them. This verse from a Valentine
card offers a nice remembrance: "The love you show throughout
the year, the understanding too, the kindness and the thought-
fulness in everything you do; these things will always mean far
more than words can ever say, and that is why this Valentine
brings so much love today!" "
