    Mary,

    My father was diagnosed with leukemia last year in October and we have been going through all that is associated with that. I hope that your father is comfortable and loved and that someone is helping to take care of you, as well.

    So sorry Mary. You and your Dad will be in our prayers - now and when we're on the mountain. Take care of your family. There is nothing in life more important.

    Keep close to Nature's heart...
    and break clear away, once in awhile,
    and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods.
