    Hello- you are in my thoughts and prayers so much these days as I know you are preparing to move on. I can only imagine the pull on your heart strings. Will you have a replacement on site, or further afield through TEC? I was in florida for a couple weeks when you sent this last message. Dan had to have knee surgery so it was a good time for me to get away while he was home with Carter. The ‘boys’ have bought a house of their own and will be moving soon, but Carter will still be here the 3 days of week that Dan is out of town working. Carter seems to be adjusting well to the changes in his life – he can be quite insightful at times expressing his thoughts and feelings. Take care and greetings to everyone.

    Fondly – Barbara
