You’ll need a few tissues as you read the December E-Forum. Marlaina’s tribute to Marcia was so touching, I needed a fair number of them. Then Vicky’s tribute to Bob Prahin came in, and I needed a few more.
 
I’ve also been getting a fair number of address changes and a handful of death notices over the last few weeks, and have been taking care of those, along with adding several affiliates’ new members. Lane is working on a new timetable for affiliate certifications; I will have more details by our December call.
