Welcome.
I wish you the best, and I am right there with you.

Something that is really helpful is to fill out the profile and begin a journal.

Born in Elmhurst, IL and grew up in Winfield, IL. Married in 1971 moved to Oak Lawn, IL, where I live today. Missed my hometown until about 10 years ago. Finally realized THIS IS my hometown and have enjoyed it so much more ever since. Each of these towns is suburban Chicago, although quite different from one another in quality of life, etc. emoticon
