Marc, it is hard to express the sorrow I feel for you and your family.
It is hard to see what you have worked so hard for disapear in a short
while but I know you will rebound.

When the time comes drop me an email and I will see if I can gather up a
big batch of chile seeds to send you to help with a restart.
