So glad you came out in the open and let us know you were here. I surely hope that the new year brings you and your husband much joy.
If we have helped you along the way, it has truly been our pleasure. We all came here in the beginning looking for answers and then stayed on knowing that we could help the others that come along behind us.
It is our way of giving back and refilling the "Caring and Support Well" that we all draw from.
Bless you and your husband. May 2010 will be a wonderful year for us all,
61 years old
