Though I moved far away and haven't ever been good about catching up, I still remember fondly the many days and nights spent at the Bicking home. Thank you Dean and Judd, for befriending and putting up with the geeky wiseass from the Midwest, and for the countless hours of D&D and pirated computer games and the massive games of jailbreak we'd play on weekends. And thank you especially to Linda, for letting Chris and I invade your home on a regular basis, and for feeding us and looking after us all the time.  My heart goes out to you, and I hope that you find strength in one another, and take comfort knowing that your friends and family care very much. Even from a thousand miles and twenty years away.
