Re: OT: update on my dad


I'm so sorry, Theresa. You had some direction about what he wanted in that
situation and helped him. Not everyone has family willing to provide such
loving support, he was blessed to have you. Tell those girls to give you
lots of hugs. We're always here to listen if you need to talk.
