Get Well Soon, Pippa!
It seems that Simon and Talis' daughter, Pippa, is in sick and in the hospital. Your prayers and thoughts would be appreciated!
I remember being in the hospital when I was a kid. The experience was much softened by getting to pick out a toy from the Ruth Lyons Children's Fund, as all kids in the hospital around here did and do. (I got a yellow dog/bear.) You forget about that sort of thing until this sort of thing happens, so I am mentioning it here now.
I wish Pippa lived in the Tri-State, so she could get a toy from Ruth Lyons, too!
