Hi, are you okay? It's getting close to a month since either of you posted. I'm concerned.

Hey Jim,

There was a glitch in the forum database that was preventing people from posting. Jo pointed it out to me last week, so I don't know how long it was an issue. Any way, that might be why it was been even quieter than usual.

And for my sins, I was in hospital two days this week having minor surgery. My trouble is that now I'm getting old and have diabetes, they always insist on keeping me in overnight "just in case"!

How are you, Pete, Jim and Bryan - all keeping well, I trust?

Honestly, I I'm starting to think that I am still not right from 5 years ago, and I just lost another friend suddenly. He was way younger than me too.

But it's all selfish. Gerry loved God. He and his wife led worship, and the only way I can describe it is that it was like participating with him in his prayers. They had just been part of a conference, and he passed on overnight that same night, home with the Father that he loves so much.

And Bess, is with God too, and my son Dave. No more pain for either of them, (hers physical and his emotional/spiritual).

That's right, my friend. That's the right way to look at it.
But sometimes it can be tough to do that, don't you think?

I just found out my supervisor knows Gerry's widow.

Well I never! There's a coincidence!

I recently had contact from a lady I trained with back in 1958-62! Haven't been in touch since I attended her wedding about 1970. But I wrote a small piece for the annual 'magazine' of the nurse's guild (old nurses who trained at the same hospital) and she wrote to me. What a  treat!
