Sad!

The report I saw said he was 69.

Hey Rick, seeing your handle around here is a breath of fresh air.
You're well, I hope?

Iíve been better. But I am making it. Iíve been dealing with some pretty severe issues with my back. Five surgeries in the last four years and one more scheduled in July. I read the forums to try and keep up with everyone. I hope all is well with you and your family.

Oh wow, I hope this next one does the trick, but we know what a rabbit-hole back surgery can really be. Prayers up.
My kids are grown, mom is aging and not gracefully anymore. I miss our Mobile adventures and wonderful herfs of days gone by.
