I will be offline for what I hope will only be a short time.  I’m taking time to post this for those of you that I have come to think of as friends.  As some of you know, my family has been particularly hard hit by cancer this past year.  My sister has been fighting ovarian cancer and once again has been hospitalized.  This time is different.  She is not doing well.  I ask each of you to speak to your “higher power” on her behalf and, most especially, that of her 19 year old son.  This young man has been handed a terrible burden to deal.  You see his father died before he was even born and his mother is the only parent he has every had. 

There really isn’t much else I can say, but thank you and bless you all.
