  Once again we've had a number of us die. These were all very special people who contributed so much to others and to life. It seems that slowly but surely it comes to us all. As I look at the names on this list, I recall the times that I talked with some of them, and maybe even hugged some. I'm thankful that they came our way. May God bless each and every one.
