well, it was a year ago today when we found out that my Mom had somethin' wrong in her head. sure has been a strange year. she wanted me to tell all of you how much she has 'preciated all the prayers and good wishes and emails and cards that so many of you have sent. it all helps to make us feel not so bad. plus, we're here this year, enjoyin' a lovely Spring in the Mitten state, and that's a good thing. it's almost memorial day and i know a lot of us will be plantin' and barbequeing, so enjoy! we love you guys!
