May 21, 2007 Memphis

Sorry that I have not posted in a couple of days. Several things have kept me from posting. Saturday morning in Indianola, Ms as we were having our morning map meeting Greg call to tell me my mother had passed away the previous night. While I have known for awhile that her time was coming, it had been very difficult. The women on the trip have been wonderfully supportive.

Angela, Bridget and I discussed the possibility of this happening while I was gone and we decided that I would continue and we would have a memorial service when I get home so that is what I am doing.

Saturday the ride was a 62 miles from Indianola, MS to Clarksdale, MS. I physically felt better than I had the day before but was emotionally drained. I did the entire 62 mile ride.

I just wanted to let you know that I'm thinking of you. I know that the decision to make this trip was hard, but you did what you thought was best. I am proud of you and know that your mom was, too. You know how much I loved her.
