    Hi Girlie –

    I am so sorry to read of Grant’s death. He was much too young for that and you are much too young to go through it. I’m very sorry that I cannot be at the funeral but I am battling cancer that started in December. Currently I’m in chemo treatment which is tough. It causes extreme pain in the first week after treatment along with great tiredness. That is the week I am in now. Otherwise I feel fine and am respondingto treatment, so do not worry about me. Sorry little girl, I wish I could be there to to comfort you. My deepest sympathy to you and the kids.
