Nice that Colleen is there for a visit before she starts a new school year. Nobody better to make you smile than that young lady! Enjoy the time with your precious daughter.
Sending positive vibes, thoughts and prayers your way.
Thanks, Mare. We really enjoyed Colleen's visit. She was a big help and always beings not and smiles! Sad to see her leave tomorrow!
Just spent another full weekend at Bonnet being stopped by so many people asking about you and what they can do to help. To which we quickly pull out a card for your website. Hang in there because there's a lot of people counting on you!
Thanks, Kevin and Wendy! Miss my Bonnet family and friends. I check out the webcam often!
Hi Mad & Jim!
Looks like you have adapted to your new home in Pittsburgh 👍😍.
Not surprised with Jim's ability to give Colleen the grand tour of Pittsburgh! He's always had a knack to familiarize himself with wherever you were & then readily share his knowledge with others. Hey ... tour guide in his retirement maybe??😉
Saw you taking your hallway walks!! Keep up the good work, as Richard says, use it or loose it.You certainly are working hard & using all you can to be strong!!
We love you,and the boys , Cait,Bob & I are praying and send both you our best 😘😘😉👍
Love, Pat & Bob🙏😉😍
Jim was right! I guess I forgot to hit "Submit"! I know I sent a reply to this. Must have been a lack of oxygen moment! Anyway, thanks for the love and prayers!! Sweet dreams! XOX
