Tabitha emailed Bob to see how he was doing since we haven't heard from him in a while.  And unfortunately, even though his Uc is giving him a reprieve, his diabetic foot complications have gotten worse.  So if we could all send healing vibes and cyber ((hugs)) to Bob - I think he would highly appreciate it.

For our newer members who don't know who Bob is - he's another moderator that has a huge and wonderful heart. He has given so much to HW over the past year(s) that I felt it appropriate that he get a HW hug from all of us.
