Hi. I'm not very involved in mail art these days. Sorry about that guys.

I have a very close friend who is about to pass. She has pancreatic cancer. I think she may have a few months left to go. She has always been supportive of my art and has shown a special interest in mail art in particular. She doesn't participate, but has always been thrilled when i've sent her stuff in the past.

If any of you feel like sending something her way i would be very grateful.

Thanks everyone. Miss y'all.
