I for one have really been missing your posts and keep wondering if I should trouble you by writing in some serious stuff or keep them at bay. Alan, your posts are like goldmines and contain so much wisdom that a lot of the new entrants would love to read.
I dread to ask about Maggie but then I have no options. Please do open up up and come on line and let us know the status. You are truly one in a million and to a large extent you have been instrumental in changing a few of my harsh out look towards people but it does not end there. You have to continue with your posts till you find a heir to carry on your messages. You well know my thoughts on God and will never ever change my views on that issue - but will be ready to fight until death if someone said anything nasty about you beliefs. You are you and I am I - we may not agree on certain issues but one thing that binds us is friendship and I hope this is one thing that will carry on and on until the end and even after that,
Do give tons of love to Maggie and please do keep us posted on how things are moving.
Your friend forever,
With lots and lots of love and a big warm hugs. Love to Maggie too.
