    I am so thankful for you, BCN, and all your contributors, and writers, and info and people that post, and even friends I actually met in real life and talked on the phone with during the hardest of times.

Thank you for being a center for a million questions that you have answered a million times, and still answering them with kindness and patience. Thank you so much. For everything you do everyday. Hugs and Love, Peg.
