Traveltext thanks for letting us know about Chris Koniers passing. How unusual that both husband and wife had to endure this monster disease with recurrences. Just the idea of that makes my head explode. I wonder how Franny is doing.

Also -It is amazing how ignorant people are - as Chris was asked if he caught it from his wife. Really??
