Remember, if you feel like chatting, that I have free cellphone nights and weekends. So if you are desperate to talk to someone from beyond the backwoods, call me from your dad's landline and I'll phone you back so it doesn't cost him. Oh, and obviously, call me ANYTIME, even during peak minutes!, if there's anything I can do to help.
Take good care of yourself. We'll get sushi when you get back, huh?


Ann, I understand some of what you are experiencing. My father died when I was 18 and was buried on Christmas eve. The death of parents is not easy. I've buried both of mine. Know that you have friends who have experienced these things and if you want to talk, send me an e-mail and I'll "e" the number back to you...rather not publish it here. In the meantime, know many people are keeping you in thoughts and prayers. Hugs and love to you.



You're in all your many friends' thoughts and prayers. Like Em said (hi, Em!), take GOOD care of yourself. I wish I could help more, but you can't even call me; I don't have a long distance plan on Guam. (Most stateside companies don't service us out here.) Email any time -- it's finals and I'm in the office a lot. Let your friends take care of you.

Requiescat in pace. Rob
