  • Thank you

    Our daughter, Lorinda, is an eighth grader at the Los Alamos Middle School. Our daughter had saved up for an expensive iPod. We told her not to take it to school, but she wanted to take it just one day to show it to her friends.  
    She had it for less then one week when she took it to school. When she arrived at school she did not have it. She thought she might have dropped it in the car (her father had given her a ride to school that day). When she got home she searched the car and the house and to no avail.

  • Cancer reveals a special grace

    Cancer is a lonely business. You need friends and loved ones to see you through, but in the end, there’s nothing like having someone who completely understands what you’re going through, from the inside out.
    A Cancer Buddy. Because peace, from friendship, is one of the greatest ways of finding relief from the anxiety the disease brings.
    So, in this month of ovarian cancer awareness, I’d like to tell you about a very special person, my buddy.
