A Very Personal Note, If I May...

For the much of the past week I might have been difficult to reach.

Cindy and I have been on the road, and early this past week I received a middle-of-the-night call from the hospice organization that has been helping to care for my Mother.

I made a rush return to St. Louis, and was able to with her for much of the final day and a half of her life. Mom passed away quietly late Thursday afternoon following battles with Alzheimer's and other afflictions. I was at her side along with a couple of other family members.

Mom's funeral will be on Tuesday, May 29. I will be back in the office later in the week.

In the meantime, I've had all of my mail packaged and sent to me here. I'm processing registrations for various trips and rallies, and will send confirmations as quickly as I can. We'll also get sticker and Flying J card requests out later in the week.

Thanks to one and all for your understanding.

Bob, Thoughts and prayers to you and Family. So sorry to hear of your Mother's illness and passing. It's no easy thing to go through but knowing your Mom is no longer suffering is a blessing.
