      Just thinking about all the Good Folks on here, especially my friends. You guys have been a God Send for me thru this last year since I retired. I was so lost, as it is hard for me to accept being retired at only 30. I get thru these days talking to you guys and with the support of my great family. A little piece of my black soul falls off every day due to you great Angelic Keepers!
