      Uh oh... now what?

        No, was mentioned on the 'list.  I'll wait a day or so and send Denise an e-mail.  We keep losing old guys.

          I've been really bad about keeping up with the 'list these days.  I hope everything is okay.

            Sorry to hear this, and I am sending prayers out that way.
