    • 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?
