Post Stepping down
To all of my forum members,

I just wanted you all to know I will be stepping away from my duties as the LBDA Forum moderator, its been 8 yrs and then so many years of caregiving prior to that and honestly I just need a break, I was looking through the members names tonight and so many brought so many memories back from the early years.

This is a tough journey so many of you are still traveling and I want you to know I wish you all well.

Bless you all and I am a great believer we will not be dealt something we can't handle.

Thank you all for allowing me to be your captain here on this ship called Lewy !

Hugs to you all !

Irene Selak
