        Dan, Thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers for my wife Connie. She fought a long and courageous battle. She was the love of my life. We did everything together. Never apart. Only Viet Nam duty kept us apart. We have three sons GOD blessed us with and three grandchildren. GOD BLESS you and your family and thanks for thinking of us. Your prayers are appreciated.
