Reason for Silence

Those who have already discovered this blog would be well justified in thinking I've abandoned it. After all, it's been a long time since I posted anything. I just wanted to take a moment to say that's not the case. The truth is that I lost my mother on Sunday, so my heart and mind are elsewhere. I'm going to take a little time until the fog starts to lift and then I'll be back. For those of you I do business with, please know that I will be in touch, but am just catching my breath for a bit. Thanks very much for your patience and understanding -- Megan

I'm so sorry - I feel your loss and grief. I lost my mother four years ago and think of her often.

Take your time coming back to the blog - I'll check daily anyway! It may be "good" for you to blog,..and work, but I know you have things to take care of and finish up.

Take care -- Randy Seaver

I am picking this site up for the first time ever and as I read your entry, I was reminded of my father's loss last April 23rd, due to complications from surgery for an abdominal aortic aneurysm. I have now been made aware of a paternal line history of aneurysms, and will be screened in early June.
Also, just recently and with assistance and encouragement from a DNA sponsor, I have submitted my DNA and am awaiting the results. Yours is the first blog I have ever read and posted a response.

I am very sorry for your loss. Kevin Ozburn

Hi Kevin,

Thanks very much for sharing your experience. And my condolences for your recent loss as well. My mother's passing has also made me aware of medical traits within the family. In fact, I just made a doctor's appointment today, so I seem to be following in your footsteps. Here's hoping you have a clean bill of health to accompany your many fond memories of your father. Take care, Megan

Megan -

It has been too many years....

I lost my father in 2003 on my birthday - of all days. Many tough moments followed and sometimes still happen - but I realize he fought a long illness and suffered enough. He needed peace and it finally came to him.

I cherish all the good times he and I had together and know he is still right here beside me. Your mother still smiles upon you and all you have accomplished and continue to accomplish.

Be well -

Greg Gressa
