VALUED CUSTOMERS & FRIENDS+

Thank each and every one of you who checked on us. With so many fires all over the city, I’m sure you knew many who were evacuated and at risk. To include us in your thoughts was heartwarming and comforting beyond our imagination.

We continued operating through the fires, and each of our team members is safe. We ourselves, pup, chickens and all, are back in our house and so grateful for all of the offers of help and assistance in the many forms it came from you.

We will carry the love you showed us in our hearts through the holiday season, and, truly, the rest of our lives. We wish you and yours a safe, healthy, joy filled holiday season.

With great appreciation and affection,

Cassy and Kirk Aoyagi
