Sorry for the delay on getting back to you--not deliberately ignoring you--but I'm trying to learn how to use this system so that I can keep up. Stuff like checking my own profile page for messages, change from how I used to ignore the Alert thingie, and how I should add forums--like the gang forum--to my watched threads list. I find I use that feature alot.
Chuck, it wasn't my 'big heart' in action, but my parents' big heart. Though both have passed on, we still do as they were first open to doing. The whole situation grew into sharing the great big events with them, too. Why not? They've become loyal to our family--as extended family to us! Some were pallbearers (hon. mentions) for both of my parents. No, they've never done us harm.
Hey, Brother Chuck! I'm 56 yrs old, and I admit: When I read that particular post of yours that questioned whether or not 'everyone' posting on the topic were operating (disecting) the question from the same set of definitions? I had to agree--it's something I've noticed, myself.
