Hi ~ Pete,

This is great news!!! A wonderful thread to see after being away for a week.

Just getting back from Maryland where we were helping our niece and nephew with the transition of mom going back to work (teacher) after being a stay-at-home mom for the past 5 years. We spent our days with Jacob (3) and Savannah (5) and the week flew!! The experience was unforgettable… Very positive in all areas!!

Keep moving forward dear friend and don’t forget to update your signature showing your ~ Undetectable!!!
You are in our thoughts and prayers as we all continue to move forward.
In Friendship ~ Lee & Buddy
