Elizabeth S. Craig

I'm so sorry to hear this (and just hearing it now...weeks behind in Google Reader.) Hope that the holidays and last night in particular weren't too painful for you and that you're comforted by memories of happier times with your father-in-law. Hugs and best wishes for 2013.


Heidi:These book expo podcasts are tifrirec! What a great idea and wonderful help for those of us who weren't there. I always look forward to the next book of life podcast and these were an extra treat. You're such an asset to AJL! Thanks for keeping us listening!Toby Harris


Thanks so much for your kindness! I've received so many wonderful notes via email and so much support. I'm ready to delve back into the wonderful world of book blogging again and am working on my "Best of 2012" list.

Christmas went fairly well, considering everything. NYEve will be another challenge, as we've had my in-laws over to celebrate the holiday since about 2000. My mother-in-law will still be coming to spend the night with us and observe the NY, which is a good sign she's coming along as well as we could have expected.

Thanks to all, again.



I'm so sorry. I pray that you and your family can find a measure of peace this holiday season.


Sorry about your loss - Missed you - Concerned about you - Happy you are back!


My prayers to you and yours. May your memories comfort you. Blessings, Lisa
