Hi all,

Sorry to be late to the party–tried to register Monday and had computer challenges.

Kathy Ozenberger here.  Work for University of Texas Medical Branch for over 20 years–now Chaplain for 2 community hospitals and interim manager.  Busy days, but need the fellowship that Oates seminars bring.

I look forward to new ways to see my art –making greeting cards, scrap-booking and quilting as part of grief sometimes.  And ways to help patients/families cope with grief through art.  I’ve just had 2 aunts die in North Carolina–and couldn’t go to the funerals.  With one we had love of sewing and crafting in common, the other love of books in common.   The second Aunt loved my family and prayed for us daily.  I will miss them both–and will say good-by in August at family reunion.

Welcome all–glad to be back with you Rose and Rick–an maybe Gail, too.  Hi William James!! Nice to meet you!
