Nicki and I were in Henderson, NV this weekend for a memorial service for her cousin Gwen, who passed away after a long illness on July 3rd.

There was a gathering of family and friends who said good-bye to Gwen, including her son Tristan (17), as well as Dorothy and Boris, who have been like our surrogate parents since we moved to California.

Our hearts go out to Boris and Doff and the rest of the family for their loss.
