Toben, I know this is a tough transition, but it makes me feel really good to hear about the family making this decision and adjusting it to the 'new normal' that life has morphed into. Not of your choosing, indeed. But your responses to it are of your choosing and you all are showing great courage. I see it as an adventure with your future!

If you guys are looking for a church, we go to First eFree I know you already know some people from there. Peter Mayberry (from The Navigators) and Ele and Homer Bromund are friends of Joanne's parents. Thought of you today Toben when I got a bum cart at the grocery store. I immediately went back for a better one. Who has time to be wrestling a shopping cart??
