EXCUSE MY ABSENCE -- DEATH IN FAMILY

To everyone, I hope all's well.

Just a quick note to let you know I'll be away for a while.  My nephew, my brother's son, suffered a massive heart attack yesterday, and passed away.  He is only 34 years old.  He lives in Fargo, ND, and my brother lives in Phildadelphia.  I am leaving for Philadelphia tonight to accompany my brother to Fargo.  No preparations for arrangements will be made until my brother and I get to Fargo, therefore, I don't know when I'll be able to get back to you.  But, I'll get to you when I can.
