". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

(William Shakespeare's Othello, I.iii.88-90)

It Sure Seems That Way, Evan

Friday night in the hotel while catching up with some online communications I noticed that composer/musician Dr. Richard Hillert had died. I called to my husband, who was in the other room, to let him know, but he couldn't make out my words. "What?" he called back. Evan, who of course has no idea who Richard Hillert is, stepped in to help, yelling loudly, "RICHARD HILLERT DIED!" and then turning around and announcing sadly, "We're just losing everyone!"

Prayers abounding for your little guy, Evan. *sigh*

I actually knew who Dr. Hillert was from my days at Art of Music Camp at RF. I feel just like Evan recently with the deaths in our family and friends. Dh keeps going to funerals and leaving me home with the boys. I'm hoping this pattern quits soon!
