    Barb,
    It's been an amazing journey getting to know you since Brian's passing.  WIth every challenge, every heart break every achievement I am reminded the human spirit is incredibly strong.  Today, I realized the battle you are in to overcome the fall of a hero from grace.  But you see, that is the beauty of grace.  It is undeserved and yet we still receive it.  Peace and Grace to the bitter man I argued with on Facebook today.  Although he had some very negative things to say about Lance Armstrong and TEAM LIVESTRONG, he can not prevent the goodness in people like you.  I hope this contribution helps you with your fight.  Have a safe, comfortable and healing ride my friend!  With all my love and admiration, Annie
