Re: update on DF's daughter

Thanks Theresa; I'll get a card out to her and DF/family when I get home
in the morning. And let us not all forget that prayer is a powerful
thing. I wonder if that dear girl knows how inspiring she is to so many
of us out here who have never even met her?? And David...I know we kid
him a lot but he has to be one of the most noble and honorable men, in
the truest sense of those words.
