It's been an odd start to the week. Yesterday morning while we were still at church, my brother-in-law John Hayden passed away. It was both a surprise and yet not totally unexpected. Thirty years ago, John was diagnosed with leukemia and although he beat it and went into remission, his doctors told him he was unlikely to live to see 50. He did his best to beat the odds -- he exercised and took good care of his health. He and his wife Lisa adopted and raised two kids, Susie and Andrew. He was planning to retire and spend his time at the lake. Tomorrow would have been his 59th birthday. Personally, I think John will be spending it fishing, where the breeze is cool, the water is like glass, and the ice chest is always full. If you've ever read my Gargoyles fanfics, John is the reason I wrote "Despair and Deliverance."

I hope everyone has had a happy holiday. We're having a punk Christmas here -- my son and his family came down with a fever on Christmas Eve and were horribly sick the next morning so we haven't had our family celebration yet. However, this did mean that I had time on my hands to finish something up..... Merry Christmas!

I was wondering if you could do a pic of Brooklyn for me? If you decide to, can you send me a note?

Hey, I just wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday!
