I check your Mom's blog all the time and then I also find my way to your's, Fuzzy, Christopher and Katie's. But I usually only leave comments on your Mom's. Anyway, I have been thinking about you and your whole family and wishing I could be home to give you a hug. Your Mom and Dad are such special people and your family is truly amazing. My Mom told me about the service for your Dad and how wonderful it was. I'll be home for Christmas and certainly hope I can visit with you and everyone. Please know you're in my prayers. Stay strong. Love, Mary
