I owe you guys a big apology for being so MIA these past couple of months! Things have been quite hectic at our house and my computer time has been severely limited.

I've been busy helping out my mom the last few months. She had surgery back in the spring and another round of chemo. This round hit her way harder than last year's and I've been spending a lot of time at her house. Add that into our normally busy family life and it's been crazy around here.

I feel that I've seriously neglected this board and I'm sorry about that. You guys deserve more leadership than what I can give at this time. This has been on my mind for a long time and has been a tough decision for me because I love this board and its members! You guys have been a part of my life for a LONG time!

So, it's with a heavy heart

Thank you so much for everything you've done for the board. I hope your mom's health improves. Unfortunately, I do know what it's like. You and your family are in my thoughts.

Thanks for all of your work as cl. You kept the board going.

Thank you for being CL. I wish the best for you and your family. Remember to take time out and take care of yourself as well. I know it's hard to be a caretaker.
