September 11th – Never Forgotten

We’re Still Standing

Those twin towers
Standing tall with pride,
Fell with grieving hearts.
Stunned, America cried.

But we’re still standing.

Bin Laden tried
To crush our land,
But we stood our ground
With our flag in hand.

And we’re still standing.

Red for valor
And the blood that fell.
White for purity
Our heroes tell.
Blue for the justice
That will be done,
Proving once more
These colors don’t run.

And we’re still standing.

Retirement Update

Hi Raven,

As I approach my first year of retirement from Raven, living now in Lake Placid, just wanted to say Hey to all at Raven. I will forever be thankful for answering the small add in the paper in ’99 for dispatcher and fooling enough people to be hired!

It would be hard to find a better group of people, owners, supervisors, office, shop and drivers to work with. It takes good people to make a good Company and Raven is a good Company!

My wife Carol, and I wish you all the best and continued success.
