Would love to see/meet you when you are home...Dave will be in South Africa from April 5-19...how long are you in Vancouver?
I know there are probably 100 family members and 5000 friends lined up to see you, but would it be possible?
One whole year, has the time gone fast or s.l.o.w?
Take care
Lesley
