Well, so much for 2013. And good riddance. It was a very tough year. Five deaths in one year is five too many. I'll take this moment to pay final respects to Cecilia, Fiona, Toni, Marguerite and John: young and old, in sickness and in health, they've all left this world a poorer place for their passing. But they were loved, and are missed, and will never be forgotten.
So here's to a bright and encouraging new year. To all of you, be well, be safe, be happy -- and may your dreams come true this year.
