Long day ahead...

My big brother is now home from the hospital with Hospice, surrounded by family and friends. His tender heart is literally worn out, and so is he. I want to go collect some hugs while I can, so Dick is arranging a car rental (we only have one vehicle here) and I will head to Albany as soon as I can get packed.

Mickey is just shy of turning 69 next month. It will be a glorious celebration for him...

I'll be careful and be in touch as I can. Thanks in advance for good thoughts for our family.

Have a safe trip and enjoy the visit. This is a difficult time. I've done it more than once. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your entire family honey. Big hugs. :)

I too have lost a brother much too young. John was not quite 49 when his heart gave up on him. You and your family are in my heart and prayers. Big hugs xo
