It seems...

that I'm always talking about cancer. John and I attended the Memorial Service for his boss, Pat Wilson, on Saturday. She was diagnosed in February with brain cancer. She was 58.

One of our bestest friends, Stephen, is in his final days. He has prostate cancer.

I hate cancer.

I got an e-mail...

That blew my socks off. A hundred years ago, when I was a student at Texas Christian University, I joined Alpha Gamma Delta. Sadly, the chapter closed. I always believed I could do more, so for many years I was a member of what was then called the "Official Family". I worked for a number of years as a New Chapter Development Consultant. My daughters all grew up knowing about Alpha Gam. I am proud to say that all four of them are Alpha Gams. They are members of Epsilon Upsilon at Tarleton State University. I now have a granddaughter, Anna, who I fully expect will be an Alpha Gam.

Today I got an email that said that AGD has been asked to make a presentation at TCU in September. This means a possible return to campus. I can honestly say I'm shocked. I'm thrilled. I don't have the words to convey my emotions. I just know I will be there.
