TAP’s for Britney’s family for his father-in-law’s sudden passing; Cruiser’s sister-in-law for upcoming post cancer surgery; YHC and Shots Fired’s colleague battling Stage IV colon cancer; and YHC’s family friend just diagnosed with rectal cancer.  Still praying for Jessica and her boys.  Thanks for Guitar Hero getting back into his house and gaining 10 years by shaving off his gray beard.  All are reminded to be thankful for each day and to help those who are less fortunate.


YHC is always intimidated to Q, because all PAX do such a great job when they Q.  Thanks for pushing me to be a better leader by your example.
