You made me cry, I cant believe I am in the 100 things. (Im not at witty as Socks, but you will find I cant spell, let the be your humor.) I also think and believe I will have brest cancer. Thought I was the only one. I love you, though I tell you that all the time. But we all need to hear it once in the while, hell im my case, every day!
