In the meantime, I will try to keep us here until Ratty is able to return. Copas will do his part and Rob is chomping at the bit. Rob, of course, will have to wait a little longer.
Please be patient with us. We are hoping for Ratty's return at least as much as you are.
Your messages of comfort were received. I do know that Ratty saw them and was touched by them even if he was unable to respond at the time. I thank you on behalf of the family.
