    Hello! I have been away from SP for "a while" and I didn't realize you had lost your dear loved one. I am so very sorry to hear it; it must have been a terrible shock to you and your family. So I'm sending my hugs and prayers -- they may be late but are very heartfelt. I hope you're finding the strength you need to get through this and finding each day a tiny bit easier. Wendy

    Oh dear--sorry to hear about your fall, but I'm glad it's not too serious and you're up and running again. I had a bad fall about a year ago, and it took a while to be able to use that knee comfortably again. I am having to be really careful these days on steps, even in my own house. Old age ain't for sissies, as Bette Davis famously said.

    I hope you have a good week, my dear! Let's keep on keepin' on!
