Update

Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers about my sister-in-law, Mary.  You all have been a big comfort to us during this difficult time.

I just wanted to let you all know that Mary passed away a little after 9 pm.  As you can imagine, we're pretty heart-broken.  Please keep our family in your thoughts and prayers.

I will be taking a short blog hiatus, other than The Girl's National Poetry Month Blog Tour post scheduled for tomorrow.  She worked on it this evening, and it helped keep her mind off things for awhile.

I don't have the words to express just how much we appreciate you all, but please know that your kindness means so much to us.
