As I prepare this email, I am in shock that it is the 18th of March!  Holy Week is just one Sunday and a few rehearsals away.  Rehearsals will be on the normal schedule tonight. 


I had a wonderful visit with my sisters.  Norma (76) is growing weaker by the day but was healthy enough to be active with us and we followed her lead and enjoyed many outings, as well as spending time sharing memories and laughs.  The last day was hard of course.  She will have at least one more test but is pretty sure she will not do any more chemo.  Thank you so much for your prayers.  I was able to completely unplug from this work for a week and for that I also give you thanks.  The weather in Reno, Nevada was sunny and beautiful while I was there.
