I am passing on a note from Julie and Roger Ford, known to us all as Birdman and BMW (Birdman's Wife):

It has been a while, I read often but we have been so busy lately. Roger and I leave today for Duke. He is going to have a mini allo stem cell transplant. I have created a Caring Bridge page for friends and family to read the journal and follow his progress, visit the photo gallery and write us a note in our guestbook.

Hope you are all well,
Julie (BMW)

The link has now been added to our Personal Stories Page:
