very sad - it must be so difficult to get back on track once you have fallen by the wayside if this was such a case. Some do - but many more don't and it seems to me to be a downward spiral.

Ricky this is not the time or place to discuss family bereavement. If they know the family they will approach the appropriate top family members. This is not the appropriate place to have discussion.
