Jeff, I just stumbled onto your profile page. My condolences to you on the loss of your dear wife. This very day was the funeral of our son-in-law's father who died on Monday after a long struggle to recover from a burst brain aneurysm.

Hello fellow men, I have question for any of you that has an answer. There is a good friend of mine that is trying to improve her life. She is wanting to get out of the party life, stop drinking, and get herself back into a Godly lifestyle (She’s Christian). When we get to work together, which is rare now, we usually joke around and sometimes talk some personal stuff. Family, friends, life in general.
