I wanted to post a note and let all of you know that I will be out of pocket for a while. There has been a death in the family and I and my clan will be on the road for most of the next week in order to travel to the funeral.
As a result of all of this I'm a bit behind in my correspondence. If you have emailed me over the last 3-4 days and I have not answered it is due to the rather tumultuous week that has just passed. Additionally, I discovered this week that the voice mail feature on my phone was not functioning properly. As a result, I discovered I had dozens of messages that I had never heard much less answered.
I will make every attempt to get caught up on my email and phone messages once I get back home. I would just ask for a little more patience than usual due to the unusual circumstances this week has brought.
