Well, better late than never as they say. As all readers know First Friday was a whopping two weeks ago already yet this is the first time I have had to sit down and write about the wonderful and unique exhibits I had the privilege of visiting on the evening.
First, I want to thank everyone who emailed, called or mentioned to me in person their condolences over my mother's death, and that they were glad that I wrote my experiences in An Apple A Day.

I had no idea that I would be writing about end-of-life decisions so soon.
