Friends around the world

This older son who is in Arizona, has been supportive from afar. Our younger son, we were fortunate that he could come home and stay with his father, and hold his father's hand during surgery, and his wife is a doctor. You don't have an awful lot of friends when you run around the world, but the ones that I have had here have been really very wonderful. And friends from afar, really marvelous to live for the era when (from places where you didn't use to be able to talk on the phone and still can't very easily), you can often get FAX, or as we did last night from this friend in Australia, an E-mail. That linkages, I have been impressed with. How strong they are around the world.
