    I have some sad news to report to you all.
    At about 2:00am this morning Arizona time, my mother passed away.
    She died peacefuly and in her sleep.
    I will be heading out to Arizona tomorrow morning, and stay for a couple of weeks to be with dad.

    For this, I'm moving up the deadline for Gauge E-Mag articles to September 12th.
    I will get the next issue out in time, Mom would of wanted me to do that.
    Thank you all.

    If you don't cry for the loss of a loved one, there was no love to begin with.
