It’s a sad day in Music City today what with all the death and destruction from last night’s tornado. Personally, I am fine and all my family is fine, and I appreciate your many messages of concern. I am without electricity, but so are some 50,000 other people. That’s a small price to pay for escaping the devastation all around me.

Things here won’t be back to normal for quite some time. I ask for your patience and understanding if we don’t get our monthly newsletter out on time, and if I don’t respond to your correspondence as quickly as usual. I ask for your thoughts and prayers for those not as fortunate as I. A lot of our friends and neighbors are suffering right now, and we need to be mindful of their pain. 

Thank you again for thinking of me and my family. Whisper a special prayer for Nashville sometime today, and God bless.
