    Rose I am very sorry for you and your family for your loss. This has been a terrible year for everyone. My father in law passed, and my uncle. My aunt is fighting liver disease and my cousin has cancer. The holidays are the toughest but I wish you strenth and an ear if you want to talk. Dale has been asking about you also, so I will let him know. Lou just told me today 11/30/10. Take care and if you want to write to my email address above or at work? My prayers are with you.

    Your friend
