    My belated but sincere congratulations and good wishes to Susan Yochum, whom I knew briefly in Illinois. I’m so glad you are where you wanted to be.

    I (belatedly) would like to congratulate Marilyn Antonik, whom I am certain will be blessed by and benefit from the wisdom of her companions in living out the mission of love, mercy and justice.
