Hi everyone,

Steve and I are fine here in central NY state, fixing up the house and finding doctors - that was more challenging than expected!

Chicago, good luck with the move - our move was exhausting so I hope you have help!!! It will be great to be near family - God bless. 

Todd, Glad you are doing well - think of you often - God bless.

Sara, I was thinking of you with every snowfall, and again with the marathon in the news - thank you for shaking the tree again, and stay well and happy - God bless.

Love to all - ChuckIMG_20221103_175053%20%281%29.jpg

Hi Sara!

Thank you so very much. So hard to believe that it is seven years now! Holy cow. Thank you and all our other wonderful angels/friends on here :-) I hope and pray that you are doing well. Anyone who reads this, just know that you are worthy, wonderful, appreciated and loved. Be well my friends.

Hi everyone,

Sara, it's good to hear from you - being busy is a blessing for us as it underlines our usefulness and worth whether in professional or personal capacity, so I'm happy for you. It's a good feeling to be needed.

Mary Jane, I know you're not imagining having Bob there and I'm glad he is helping you as he always will. I'm sorry about your memory issues but have the same thing myself so can only say we both need to tell our doctors about it. Steve and I finally got appointments to see a PCP, and he'll be the same Dr. for both of us. Finding our needed healthcare professionals around here is proving to be difficult, but this is the first step. We each see him for the first time January 23, the day before my 69th birthday.

I want to recommend a movie we saw on TV called "The Inbetween". It depicts the struggles with loss and grief very well I think and is also a touching love story.

Hope all here are well and taking care of yourselves -

Love, Chuck
