Bye for now.
« on: January 26, 2005, 12:28:15 am »
It's been a bad, bad week for the Jav.  We thought that one of my spouse's clients was causing a load of grief and we thought we might lose that account.  That turned out to be much ado about nothing.  Then yesterday morning my brother died when his wood stove caught the house on fire.  The rest of his family is ok, but with no insurance they are left with nothing.  So I have to take some time and put my family back together again.

You all have been like my extended family so I couldn't just leave without saying bye first.  However my family needs me now more than ever so I must take some time away.  This place has been my home away from home, or I should say my home within a home.  Especially Engineering has been fun for me.

Love you all and God speed,

Matt

Thank you all for the wonderful thoughts, it's been tough right now but we are getting through it.  Hopefully I will be back soon, some of you may see me from time to time for a moment as this is my home page.  But I just wanted to drop in and say hi.

Thanks again everyone,

Matt
