Captain's Log: Stardate 10509.0
On behalf of Richard and myself, I just wanted to take a moment and thank everyone for their thoughtful emails, letters and phone calls during this most difficult time. I can't begin to imagine going through this experience without the support you have all shown and I'm infinitely grateful to be surrounded by such good caring people.

We've said this before, but we really should try to get together more during the off-season. In a few days, I'll be sending around an announcement about the annual Frolicking Exuberant Eagle crew party, which I hope everyone can attend.

In the meantime, I wanted all of you to know that you're the best. May our friendships, as well as my mother's memory, transcend both time and space.
