Thanks, Jennifer. I heard back from Dan Larson's secretary Vicki this
morning, and she said Dan would call my son when he got out of a meeting.
That's good news; the bad news was that the other two counsellors left for
vacation last Friday; that seems like bad timing to me, with the stress of
finals. I'm waiting to hear from my son again, before calling Lori Haslem,
so I know what to say.
Everyone has been so warm and helpful, thank you! I'll keep you posted
about how this works out.
