A very special “thank you” to all who sent well wishes this past month during my mother’s illness. Mom is in palliative care and resting comfortably. I was able to spend a month with her through the tremendous support of my friend, Julie (who so capably looked after FibreWorks and the dogs) and the many friends and supporters who assisted her.
