Merry Christmas You Old Coots!
« on: December 24, 2007, 09:05:44 AM »
I wanted to wish all of the "long term survivors" that I've come to know and love through AidsMeds a joyful Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Your wisdom and humorous advice has been invaluable to me and oh so many others.

I'll lift my glass in a silent toast to those of us who survived, but more importantly to those of us who didn't.

I love you guys.

Yes, Merry Christmas to all of us LTS!  And like you said, Hal, here's to those of us who didn't make it. :-\  Hopefully we can honor them by living good, long lives.

Thankyou Hal,

Also wishing you, and everyone else a very merry Christmas. I just got in from work about an hour ago. Had a rough night. Had to send two residents out to ER, and we had one unexpected death last night. It was a difficult for those of us working, and the family members that were present.

Ed and I had our gift exchange, Ed's heading over to his mothers shortly, and later today, we will be visiting the cemetary, and pay respects to several of our friends, that have passed on.

We're planning a ham dinner around 6:00 this evening. I will be hitting the sack shortly. I''m bushed !

Have a wonderful day------Ray
