I've just heard from our friend Joni. Of course she and her husband were gone for several weeks, traveling around the southwest visiting friends and family. Since their return Joni has been spending time with her sister who was gravely ill with lung cancer. Just moments ago, she called to tell me that her sister passed away this morning.
I told her that I would post an entry, so that you all would know about this. Please pop over to Joni's journal and offer her some kind words.
