Hope your new year is starting out well.

The past couple of months haven't been all that good in this neck of the woods.  My wife and I spent a good part of the first part of it helping take care of her mother, who started to have medical problems.  These slowly got worse until Christmas morning, when she went into hypoglycemic shock (she was diabetic), having a blood sugar of 33.  She was revived and taken to the hospital, but we lost her on Dec 27, and buried her on Jan 31. She was 86, and will be greatly missed by a lot of family, friends, and neighbors.

I'm not a religious person, but this song seemed appropriate:

I hope to get back later when we get more time; my wife is her executor, so things could get a little busy.

To everyone out there, I hope you had a wonderful holiday season, whether Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanzaa, or whatever belief helps to ease and uplift your spirit.
