    • Hello Sheri. It is wonderful to talk to you again. I have missed you. Life has been very challenging as Al has entered the last phase of his life here on earth. Every day is a struggle for him and myself. I also published my very first book. Dahlia. It is at Create Space and Amazon this week. I feel such an accomplishment. I have now left a slice of me for my kids to remember. How is life with you dear friend? You can always email me at Just remember to place your name in the Subject area so it doesn’t go in the trash
