We are just about to head out to watch some volleyball tonight.  It's the Mayo Spartans at the Century Panthers in a crosstown rivalry match.  Erin's season is coming to a close soon, but not before a match tonight, a tournament on Saturday, and one final match next Tuesday.  She's really enjoyed being a part of this squad and it's certainly made the last two months fly by.

Sad news here in Rochester today.  14 year old Will Canan passed away today after an almost 9 year battle against recurring brain tumors.  Shannon and Will had some mutual friends in this great community of ours.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the Canan family tonight.

Another reminder to cherish the ones who matter to us for we can't know what the future holds.
