A personal message to my readers.

Please excuse my absence. Since this blog began there has been an ongoing health crisis in my family. My wife of 51 years is suffering with Alzheimer's. That crisis has created a need for my attention that has consumed greater amounts of time as the disease progresses and I am the sole caregiver. I hope to write more to this blog as time permits but not as frequently as in the past.



  1. Must be very difficult and lonely...I know you will need more strength than you have...I will pray a novena of Masses for you and your wife. J Buck

  2. J Buck, without the help from the volunteers at Alzheimer's Association it would have been a lot more difficult. Thank you for the prayers.


  3. Nelson,
    My heart bleeds for you and your beloved wife. I will say prayers for you both and that God grants you the strenght that you need. God bless you both.

  4. Hardnox, Thank you for your prayers. It is comforting to know how true the saying goes that there are no atheists in the trenches
