New Years' Eve will mark the final day that my parents will own their restaurant.
This is a very bitter sweet event - my parents need and deserve a break (after 40 years of running the place), yet it is all that we have known our whole lives and has become a second home to us.
Saying good-bye is going to a tough task. But we will stay strong for our parents, because this is what they want and they are very happy with their decision.
My sisters and I can't even put into words the gratitude that we have toward our parents for everything that they have done for us through our lives, and most of it is because of the restaurant - the parties, the showers, and of course ALL OF THE FREE FOOD!
We are so proud of them for making such a difficult decision, but we all know that it is for the best.
It is time to say good-bye.
