My word, Ralph, you certainly are an organized fellow!

You wouldn't know it from 95% of the "spaces" in my home as they seem to be called on the shows my 19 year old obsesses over. But I do plead guilty to being an engineer, and tend to be very methodical.

It's a very sad and difficult road. Feel free to "talk" to us. We'll listen.

I never was a very good talker, and if Sue had a number 1 complaint about me, it was that I didn't share my feelings very well. I once "jokingly" commented back to her "I told you I loved you on our honeymoon. If I change my mind, I'll let you know."

I thought that was a pretty hilarious, yet typical comeback for an engineer. She was less than impressed. I now find myself talking to her at some of the strangest times, wishing I could get an answer, or at least an acknowledgement.

Thanks for listening.
