I hate to drop some serious news on everyone, but my mom passed away recently. She was 86 and in failing health, so it wasn't totally unexpected but it's still hard. I'm going to an out-of-town service, so I'll be out of things for a while. Bill will take over while I'm gone, so please keep writing.
And keep reading!! This is why reading is so important, guys! Tough times are bound to come and reading can give you the battle gear to face them. For instance, those who've read The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe will know why death isn't the final word. Reading will help you out. So keep at it!
As Bill said in a post recently, we're all in this together, men!
