- Sorry about not updating last week. As promised, I want to explain the events of last week. Their were two deaths in my extended family. My wife's uncle passed away unexpectedly. I didn't really know him all that well, but my wife had many fond memories of her uncle from when she was a little girl. Naturally, his death put a bit of a damper on her spirits.

Two nights later, I received a phone call at 2:30 in the morning from my nephew's wife. She called to tell me that her mother lost her battle with cancer, and had died in their home. My wife and I have been very close to my nephew, his wife Teresa, and their daughter. We have taken vacations together, and have had them to our home on many occasions. Needless to say, my wife and I spent some more time at yet another funeral home.

All of this hit me harder than I expected. My dad died just over four years ago from chronic heart problems, and the events of the last few days brought all those memories to the surface. Instead of my usual evenings of working on Danielle Dark, I spent a lot of time reflecting on my dad, and how much losing him affected me. I guess after four years, it still does.

I'm sure many of you can identify with these feelings.

Anyway, I have returned to the here and now, and I have put my dad back in that part of my heart where the memories of him are good and not painful.

Thank you for being the best readers anyone could hope for. I hope I can keep entertaining you for many years to come.
