Hey gang,

Truly sorry that I haven't been around much in the last few months. I've had precious little time to flight sim, and I only wish that the time honored "was too busy with work" would answer the query as to "why"? Unfortunately, that's not the case.

There's an old saying...birds have to fly, and fish have to swim. To that, I like to add; writers have to write. The following piece was difficult to pen, but like every hard thing I've written about in the last 36 years (since the death of a dear sibling), it had a certain cathartic effect when finished.

Thanks for wasting the heartbeats to read it. Very Happy

(she liked it...and that's all that matters)

The last time we spoke it sounded like things were looking better for Deb, after reading your blog I'm heartbroken and my thoughts and prayers are with your family....Just so you know, after meeting you a few times in person over the last few years, I can tell you one thing my friend with out a shadow of doubt, Deb by far has the best damn copilot by her side that anyone could ask for.

Thanks Show, and thanks to all you gents for the kind words. It is truly one of life's treasures to have "brothers" the likes that I find here.

Again...thanks all.
