    Dear Viga,

    I was so pleased that you chose this story to podcast. And you read it so beautifully, with so much tenderness in your lovely voice. I’m sure that many people today know of someone with this terrible disease. So hard, hard, hard to watch it develop, especially in our loved ones. Thank you again, Viga, for your encouragement and compassionate soul.

      I loved this story Nancy and have been waiting for the right time and vessel to share it ie.. to podcast it. It would be lovely if I could read without errors but I also don’t have time to keep re-doing it when I goof LOL. Hopefully, listeners forgive me. As for you, You are so deserving of this exposure. i’m happy to give it. And I hope now that you have my book on memoir writing, I will one day have the pleasure of sharing excerpts from that with my readers/listeners as well. Keep writing Nancy. The world needs to read/hear your voice in words.
