    Default Remember the Charleston 9 on June 18th!

    June 18, 2008 is the anniversary of the Sofa Super Store fire that claimed Nine of our Brothers. Please, keep them and their family members in your thoughts.

    Oddly its hard to believe that a year has passed. So many things have happened over the past 12 months, but with that said, it still seems that this incident was not that long ago. The incident is still fresh in memory. Maybe that is a good thing?

    Rest easy Brothers. You are not forgotten.

    Default Rememberance

    In life, there are few things that can humble us to the extent that the loss of a brother or brothers does. As we go about our days, we hold each one of you in our hearts and your families in our prayers. May angels hold you and watch over those left behind as we remember you on this anniversary of your last call. Rest easy in the arms of our father brothers.
