Often, when one of us was feeling kind of down over what he was going through, he'd be the one to try to cheer us up. He truly was an inspiration to all of us, and he will be missed.
    You have painted a picture of a wonderful human being. I know you will miss him, and I send my thoughts to you. Hopefully time will blunt your sadness and help you to remember him when he was well.

    This is a very small trouble in a world of very serious problems, but dang, one of my molars broke today. I called my dentist and he is on vacation until Sep. 7th!!! I am going to get some dental wax tomorrow to round out the sharp edge of the break and try and hang in there until he comes back.

    He doesn't have someone covering his practice while he's gone?
    Count your blessings!

    He has a place called Ashley Dental which is new here - this happened on Friday too late to call anyone. My plan is to wait until Monday to call. I like my dentist and am not excited about going to any dentist, especially some place that is new in town. I am grateful that it doesn't hurt and eating is not affected too much.

    I hope all of those in the hurricane's path are safe...

    You're always more concerned about everyone else than you are about yourself, C.

    Hope you're able to have your tooth attended to on Monday morning, C, and I'm glad it doesn't hurt too much. Let us know how it's going...
