    Wow! What inspiration! Awesome story Russ, thank you for sharing it with us.

  3. Touching story… BTW Russ have you changed your settings or something that asks readers to login each and every time a ‘like’ or ‘comment’ is made? Just the last couple of days this has been happening…Diane

      Thank you for bringing that to my attention, Diane. The only change I’d made to my settings recently was to share my posts with my friends on Facebook. I’ll bet that’s the cause of the change you see. I had noticed a decrease in likes and comments recently and had wondered why. I’m not fond of having to login in every time I want to like or commen on other sitest, and I appreciate that you told me that you are having to do so at my site. I plan to de-couple from FB. Please let me know if that takes care of the issue.
