Throughout the great design of thgins you actually get a B- for effort. Exactly where you misplaced us ended up being in your particulars. As people say, details make or break the argument.. And that could not be more accurate here. Having said that, let me reveal to you precisely what did deliver the results. Your writing can be rather convincing and this is possibly the reason why I am making the effort to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, although I can see a leaps in reason you make, I am not necessarily convinced of exactly how you appear to connect your points which in turn produce the conclusion. For the moment I will yield to your issue however trust in the foreseeable future you actually connect the facts better.

Maryann and family: I have been out of town attending my grandson's graduation from Parris Island Marine Corp boot camp. I am so sorry to read of the loss of Robert. That is such a tragedy and I hope that the thoughts and prayers, as well as the comforting words of friends and family will help sustain you during this difficult time. Please accept my deepest sympathy.
