To my Favorite Students in the World:
I'm going to be out today and Wednesday. My dad has leukemia (A Cancer of the Blood) and I want to be with him during his first set of treatments. If you pray, please remember my family during this difficult time. If you feel so inclined, wear an ORANGE RIBBON like the one on my cabinet door--it stands for Leukemia Awareness.

Remember, whoever has the most passing grades over 80% gets a free Pizza party. If you don't finish today, you will have time tomorrow to complete the assignment.
