I just wanted to pop in briefly and thank everyone who stopped by to leave a comment of condolence and support for me and my family. Outside of a sister-in-law and someone who didn't fully identify themselves, but who I suspect is an old friend of my family, I haven't actually physically met any of you, but your kindness, friendship and genuine feeling came through loud and clear. Thank you all very much. I consider each of you to be true friends, whether I've been able to look in your eyes or not. As my dad would say: "You're all good people. I don't care what anybody else says."
Also, I hope to have this blog back up and running as usual no later than Monday. Thanks again, and I'll talk to you soon.
