    Thanks for the update Java. I've emailed Jan, about arrangements, but haven't heard back from her. Let her know she's in our thoughts and prayers.

    Thanks for posting that, JAVA.

    An impressive resume! And an engaging personality, too. I'm sad Carl no longer walks this earth, but am grateful I got to meet him a few years back.

    Again, my sympathy to you, JAVA, and his other friends, and to the lovely Jan and their family.
