      Hi everyone, after a long soul searching time, I've decided not to attend camp this year….long story but to make it short…my dad has bone cancer and in my heart of hearts I feel I need to spend as much time with him as possible. We found out he had cancer last August and he has done remarkably well up until a couple of weeks ago. We have the most fantastic group of people helping us, Hospice. They are making him comfortable. He's still very witty and has asked that I say hi especially to Meg, Peg, and Kathi who he met at our Ohio mini-camp….I hope all of you have a great time (I know you will) and think of me while you're being clumsy or throwing things out of windows…LOL….

      Krissy is awesome once again…..she has been so understanding and compassionate…I love you Krissy and all my Savage Sisters….I'll be looking forward to spending more weekend camps, etc. with you guys….

      Please keep my Dad in your prayers….

      Thanks and I'll miss you guys this time but love you all and will get together again.,…
      Kathy C…aka Thelma….
      BTW….someone else has to keep watch over Kathi (Louise) ….just kidding!!!!!!

        Oh Kathy, so sorry about your Dad, you are in my prayers, I know this will be a difficult time for you.

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

                  Goodness Kathy, my prayers are with you and your dad. I am so sorry about your dad's illness. Hospice is a wonderful organization. Hospice helped us through my mother in laws sudden death and they were there after for us. I am seriously thinking of leaving the hospital world and going Hospice. There at least I would feel like I was making a difference in someones life. I pray that you have all the precious time you need with your dad. Be there for him, and do NOT for one single minute think about why you had to skip camp this year. We totally understand. My heart is with the both of you and your family. I pray that your faith will guide you through this time and make it easier for you all. I personally will miss you dearly. Glad we got to spend the day together in St Pete a couple of weeks ago. We will get together again soon. I will keep you and dad in my prayers, and know that the most important thing right now is the time you spend with your dad. {{{{hugs}}}} And we will keep an eye on Louise for you. It just wont be the same.

                  Kathy,
                  So very sorry to hear about your Dad. It's so hard to watch someone you love decline so. Kind thoughts to you and your family, during this time.

                  #109721

                  You are doing the right thing Kath. We will miss you and our hearts and prayers are with you, your dad and family.

                  (((hugs)))
