I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all
is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours
would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet savvy
so I'm not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

We sure are saddened to hear the news that Larry died earlier this week. We are so very thankful to the Lord that He caused us to be part of Larry's life -- we grieve with Zita, the children and grandchildren at their great loss and ask the God of all comfort to bless them with His comfort and consolation. We wish that we could be there with you -- know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. Always remember "that the best years are still to come!" (Martin Luther)

Lance I was so very sorry to hear from one of Laura's co-workers today. As you may know I lost my own father (also Larry) on November 17th and the world will never be the same without him. There are no words. I'm so sorry Lance.
