Lucky Dylan! (But Sad Times in Coldwater)

Dylan's friend Tucker and his family have rented a place in the Keys for a month.  The parents invited Tucker's friends to come down and join them for the first week.  So Dylan's first great summer experience is a vacation in the Keys!  They plan on tubing, kayaking, and who knows what all.  What a nice opportunity for Dylan!


Susie and Tim have been worried about her Dad for months now.  They spent weeks and weeks with him in Florida this winter.  His death is not a surprise, but as we all know, expected or unexpected, it's still the hardest thing.

We sympathize with Tim and Susie.
