  Mr. GONZALEZ of Ohio. Madam Speaker, I rise to pay tribute to Root 
Candles of Medina, Ohio on their 150th anniversary. Founded in 1869, 
this family owned, and operated company has consistently produced the 
highest quality candles our country has to offer. Now in its fifth 
generation, the Root family continues to uphold the same values that 
their founder, Amos Ives Root, first instilled: honesty, integrity, and 
diligent craftsmanship.
  Today, Root Candles continues to be a leader of industry; combining 
the latest technology in manufacturing with five generations of 
mastered craftsmanship to create unmatched fragrances and sophisticated 
color palettes. With their rich history, tradition of excellence, and 
commitment to customer satisfaction, the next 150 years are sure to be 
just as successful as the last.
  I am pleased to have this opportunity to share the history of Root 
Candles with the House and want to join in congratulating them and 
their fine employees as they prepare to celebrate 150 years of service 
to the people and communities of Northeast Ohio.
