Please hold your friends and loved ones very close. Tell them how much you love them as often as you can and never take tomorrow for granted. Life throws mean curve balls when you're least expe
In Pittsburgh, currently but I may be in Charleston, SC for three months during this winter. Thanks for the kind note. Things are looking up - just one of those years. Too many young people passing away.
