I'm in one of my falling-behind spells vis-a-vis acknowledging comments here, folks. I'm trying to answer at least most of the comments that address me directly.
If I fail to acknowledge your comment by hitting the like button (I try to do that with almost all comments people make here, to tell you I read it and appreciate it), or if I fail to reply to a comment directed to me, please know that the reason is that I'm struggling to keep up. I've picked and chosen among comments to which I responded today, and that doesn't indicate that I like one of you better than the other — just that some comments seemed to me to demand a response more than others did.
I wanted to tell all of you who left much-appreciated comments about our friend who died recently how much I appreciated each of those. I am hoping to see the surviving husband of our friend who died last week soon, and when I do so, I'll tell him about your condolences to him. Thank you for those.
