Hi Jude, I know we've disagreed on somethings, but on a lot more things you have given me encouragement and words of kindness when I needed it. People don't do that in a vacuum or just on a lark...they do it because inside they have something good to offer. I would bet I am not the first person you have supported here and that counts for something, a lot to me. It means the whole of the 42 years are not wasted, and I bet you will have many more ahead that will far out run the bad or mistakes, whatever they are. So thank you for the times you have helped me, and tried to help me, along my own weird path out of the darkness.
