Thanks to Everyone

We wish to thank everyone for their well wishes and prayers. It is humbling to know that so many folks out there are pulling for you and your family. Sadly, Al's mom passed away quietly very early Thursday morning. She held in there long enough for all the children to get to Florida in time for their farewells. She was 88 years old, and had a full, happy life. Now she is in the great card room beyond where I'm sure she's together with her husband, brothers and sisters having an awesome game!


I really have no eloquent words to write, just to say Thanks, Ma, for raising such a wonderful family for me to be a part of all these years. Love you lots!
