Sparky, I'd advise you to get your head examined if you weren't scared and depressed. do you have your schedule yet? three times a week.

I hope you are going to have some family time today. We are here in NJ. beautiful day today. everyone's getting a loaf of sourdough.

Sparky, what can I say? I am just sick over hearing your news. This is one of my greatest fears. I hope you are feeling the love we have for our family here. It's like when one of us is hurting, we are all hurting. I also hope you are getting some practical tips from others who are going through the same thing. I know very little about it. I guess I never wanted to know, because the thought is too scary. If it helps you to talk about it, it would be very helpful to many. I know you have a strong family, and that's going to be your rock. we're all behind you dear, let us know if you need anything. wish I could write my feelings better, you were the first thing on my mind when I woke up this morning, and I've been thinking and praying for you all day.
