Dear Connie, So sorry to hear about Tom's accident. Having a husband the same age and just having had our first grandchild born in August, I can so identify with where you and your husband were - but not with the pain you are going through. You are in my thoughts and prayers and, hopefully, your commitment to your profession will help you deal with this loss in some way. I remember your enthuiasm in teaching when I took my education courses at Moravian. I still have my file on Mem Fox and when I look at it I remember our shared interest in her. Sheila
