Dear Friends, Family and Community,

As you may know, my dear wife, Eileen, had a fall down the stairs recently that has changed her life forever. After a life spent enjoying skiing, golf, gardening, cooking, and traveling, and splitting her time between Chicago and Durango she now faces a future with many obstacles due to the extent of the spinal cord injury she has sustained. Currently Eileen is paralyzed from the chest down. She needs approximately 40 hours a week of private home health care in addition to 12-14 sessions per week of various forms of rehabilitation therapy. She is a determined woman, however, and is working very hard to get back to a productive life with the support of myself, our three children, friends, and family.

You keep on beating the odds, Eileen! I'd say I'm proud of you but that would imply I had anything to do with your dedicated hard work. You and Rich and Brigette and Patrick and Jacqui have all shown what sheer determination can do. Bravo! And Bravo again! With love, Judy
