A New City.....

When it comes to my life and priorities there really is nothing that I rank more important then family. After all these are the people who are always by my side during the good and the bad.... they are the very first phone call when I have some amazing news to share and my very last prayer each night before bed. None of this will change tomorrow but my prayers & calls will have a bit farther to travel. Today my baby brother left for his new home in California. I say baby brother with a bit of sarcasm... although it's true I am a few years older he is definitely several inches taller!

I am so excited for Andre' but sad as well. Certainly not sad for him... I know he will succeed at each and every one of his dreams. I'm simply sad over the new distance between us. It just won't be the same tailgating at a Brewer game if he's not there. Or drinking green dragons and singing Karaoke... okay, other people are singing, we're just laughing:) But I know that this will be a new and exciting chapter in his life and I can't wait to see what new memories become of it. He'll probably kill me for posting these photos but that's one nice thing about the distance.... retaliation is a bit more complicated! Before he left we spent some time in the studio taking a few head shots for his auditions. Here are the many faces of Andre' -

**On a separate note many of you have asked for an update on my father-in-law Joe. After a few adjustments with the dates of the transplant he is now in the hospital and receiving his preliminary rounds of chemotherapy and radiation. At the end of next week the actual transplant will take place. Once again I thank you all for your prayers and thoughts... they are more appreciated then I could ever put into words. I will do my best to keep you updated on his progress.
