"To those I love: If I should ever leave you whom I love, to go along the silent way, grieve not nor speak of me with tears, but laugh and talk of me as if I were beside you there. I'd come - I'd come, could I but find a way! But would not grief and tears be barriers? And when you hear a song or see a bird I loved, please do not let the thought of me be sad...for I am loving you just as I always have...You were so good to me! There are so many things I wanted still to do, so many things to say to you. Remember that I did not fear. It was just leaving you that was so hard to face. We cannot see beyond, but this I know, I loved you so, twas heaven here with you."

We ran out of time to get the upgrade completed, but it should get finished on the 4th of July. We made great progress, but the sheer number of articles (more than 31,000 have been posted and archived since 2012!!!) and the number of website components made it difficult to complete. Thanks for your patience. And you still have the updated visuals of the site to look forward to.
