Bill,
You and I already share a parallel I wish on nobody!  But I have already been touched by your kindness and can tell we are now brothers that will remain close.  Bless you, and welcome to the best site on the web for support.  Whatever your needs are, there is someone here to help!

Thanks! I hope that I can share and in doing so, help others. This sure is scary when you aren't aware of all the options out there.

Thanks again!
