I would like to add my best wishes for Anne. I have had the opportunity to get to know Anne through her articles as well as a few e-mails. I hope that whatever she chooses to do, it will bring her much happiness.
I also hate change but I have learned over the last couple of months that changes do happen. Sometimes it is wise to let everyone know, and sometimes it is better to ease out quietly. We just have to respect that person, and wish them the best.
I have also gotten to know Paul more, and yes I have been one to encourage him to speak out more.
Paul, is a totally different person than what we might be lead to believe, and I wish others had a chance to know that.
I also don't want Sue to feel bad about asking. 6 months ago, I also had "why" questions, and then I caused others to ask "why" of me. I think in my case it was asking "why" because I would miss them so much, but it all worked out for the better, and it will this time too.
Good Luck Anne........ God Bless!!!
