Thanks Cyndi! And thank you for the super nice email. It really meant a lot to hear you say that you see something of Victoria in my writing. She was always very supportive of me when it came to my writing and I never really quite understood why. I was happy for the encouragement then and so appreciative of it now when I remember her.

As to Kat she is a good friend and like Vickie in many ways, and of course very unlike her in others. I am so thankful to have her as a friend though and especially during what happened.

It is probably going to take me a while to get the last part published as their is a lot still remaining and I really do not want to break it into two. Spoiler alert, we make it out OK! hah! but man was it ever close to not being a happy ending. Wait until the mother fucking coyotes show up. Geezus christie.
