Thank you for those words. I have had more than a few of our Crowns cry
on my shoulder, and I mean that literally, because of the things they are
subjected to by people they considered to be good friends. Although the
rewards are great for those wearing the crown of this Kingdom, the burden
is heavy, and oft times seems more than any two can carry. 

Read carefully the words of Lorraine, she has given each of you the
opportunity to help our King and Queen if you heed her words.
