I am sorry to be sending this so late in the week. Some of you may know that I have been a caregiver to my disabled mom for the past 12 years. Early last week my mom's health took a turn for the worse and on Friday she passed away. I haven't been in the office and am quite a bit behind coming into the new week. My apologies.
