  2. Dear Family and Friends,

    After much deliberation, I have decided to change my life completely. I have decided to go a totally different way, therefore, I would like to say goodbye to all of you. Red Cross needs volunteers in the Middle East and I have volunteered to join them. I will be spending most of my time at field hospitals, tending to the needs of battle worn soldiers. I intend to do everything I can to comfort and bring relief to these brave, battle
    fatiqued, men. I am starting on April 1, 2003 and I am really looking forward to it.
    Red Cross has sent me a picture of my first group of patients and the sight of these poor creatures of the military only make me want to get to my work and my new life....ASAP! - (see attached photo).

    I will never forget you - you all hold a special place in my heart but duty calls.

    Always love and peace!

    Hmmm.... I think that was very mean spirited of you to trick us like that. Here I was sad because I thought you were leaving.

    Good one!
