James, my brother, my friend,
My prayers are with you as you wrestle with this matter. (We Bostonians need to stick together, no matter how geographically distant we get from Fenway Park
). Seriously, please know that whichever choice you make, I will support you in your decision, believing as I do that God is more concerned that we be with Him than which road we take to get there, particularly as between these two paths - much as I believe He is waiting for them to intersect.
Should you need to vent at any point, feel free to e-mail me - Irish_Melkite@verizon.net
May God grant you many years,
