Please pray for the victims of the tragedy at Virginia Tech and their families.

Sharon and I decided that we needed to go down to the Virginia Tech campus on Saturday, April 21. Even though we graduated 30 years, it has always felt like home, and we felt compelled to go home at this time of deep sorrow.

I think being there and seeing all the memorials helped us to start the healing process. It was amazing to see all the posters and signs of support from schools and people all across the country. I took pictures of lots of the memorials/remembrances, and have put them online. There are about 270 photos, and you probably want to have some tissues near by when you look at them. They are very emotional pictures.

You can find them by clicking here.

The album includes photos from our entire day there, including a softball game and a community picnic.

I've also put together a "tributes" page, which you can find at this site -

And we will prevail!
