    Wendi told me about your surgerys and I keep you in my prayers. Glad to see you back on the site. I hope to get to know you better,
    I think we have a lot in common. I love Wendi to death, such a dear person.
    I lived in Arlington for nine months (not long enough) but Wendi was not on the SnoCo team then.
