Hi Steve and Susan. I was wondering how you and the rest of your family is doing around what should be a happy time of year. I want you to know that you have been in my thoughts. I do not even pretend to know what it is like to lose a child or grandchild, but I am sure that you are all having a hard time in coping with your loss. I know that this is not the same thing, but I really miss my father at Christmas time. It was his favorite time of year. I also think about all of my relatives and how we used to get together for Christmas. I sometimes wonder why we all stop doing that. I am sad to think that I have not gotten to know my cousin's children better. After being a cancer survivor twice in the past five years, I really have begun to treasure life as well as all the people who are in my life. Give my love to the rest of your family.
