Yeah, bro, good to hear from you.  Pat had a series of strokes in 2010, she's a lot better now.  She does ask about you everytime i bump into ya.  In fact, I think the last time I saw you was at the Nola Cafe in Westminster, MD.  Ron Williams and myself ran into you. 

Blessings, Peace, Safety, and One Love, bro   STAY STRONG
