: call". Time will tell.
: Thank you.

Folks!!! I aint a GOD nor am I a superhero. I make mistakes too. Very big ones. I am human and to proof it I took the inmates up to Table Rock today. All 45 of them and twisted my ankle racing them back down. Why did I think a 32 year old could beat 18 to 21 year olds. Well actually I did beat them, But boy do I hurt. haha It was the same cloudyness that we had for the gathering. Still it was like walking thru Heaven. The boys really like it.
Bill: You make me very proud. It can only take a human to make a mistake, but it takes a very big man to say it. I knew all along you are a big hearted person. I could feel it. I told Sharon that many times. It is so good to have you back.
I am sorry you are going down the road that my father once took. With your heart that is. Please take care of yourself. And dont do as my father... No damn salt!!!!!!!!! or fried foods and all that bad stuff. Please give you children more time than I had with my father. And I had a lot of very special time.
Everyone: Be careful of short fuses. Walk away and dont look back to see if their looking at you. Sharon and I can only talk to each other over a phone via TTY. So many times words are misunderstood without the voice to accent them. Please remimder we are all a family here.
