This is Mary Ann's husband Rudy. I follow your progress through the postings and am inspired by the strength and courage each of you show. I offer each of you this wish:"May the sun
bring you new energy by day. May the moon softly restore you by night. May the rain wash away your worries. May the breeze blow new strength into your being. May you walk gently through the world and know its beauty all the days of your life." I continue to participate in bereavement counseling. It's helpful. I am facing my own health issues. I am scheuled for surgery Oct. 16 to remove part of my right kidney; I have a 1.5 centimeter mass. The good is that it was caught early.
