  Dear Insured,

Best wishes for a happy Easter! This Easter holiday provides a perfect time to reflect upon the wonders and blessings of life.

For adults and teens, there's the glory of spring, and for the little ones, there's the thrill of the Easter egg hunt.

One part of Easter celebration all families share is a fine Sunday meal. To help you celebrate your Sunday brunch or dinner, I'm enclosing a gourmet recipe for Mustard-Crusted Lamb. It makes the perfect dinner for two, but you can always make it part of a larger table or increase the ingredients proportionately for any size get-together.
