It is with great great sorrow that I have to cancel my classes at Bead Fest Philadelphia. We just found out that my Step Father has inoperable Pancreatic Cancer and I fear our time with him is very limited. I have also withdrawn my applications to teach at Bead Expo Sante Fe in 2009. In the 16 years that I have been traveling and teaching, I have never needed to cancel classes, but this is important. I live 10 minutes from my mom and Step Dad and I need to remain by their side for a while.
I cherrish this man. He is absolutely one of the most incredible people I have ever met....amazing man, friend, husband, father, grandfather and Vet. He has one of the brightest spirits you will ever come across. Please send him some good thoughts!!!!
