There once were three lovely ladies from all different walks of life that came up and stepped right in to help and support me without every looking back. To you Teri, Dawn and P, I have no words to say thank you....from the Doctor appointments and treatements, to the hospital tests, to the daily lunches, the trip to buy me head wraps, to the groceries, dinners, family get togethers, to the phone calls, and Dawnie's big tears I could not have done it without you guys!

All along there have been very special people that have been there with me since the beginning and in my own special way I want to mention them. When I came to North Carolina I meet a very special lady and her husband my very, very dear friends Anna and Bob.

As with most of us that work, have families, we tend to sometimes spend time without seeing each other....yes we both sometimes d...Read Full Post »
