    Hey All-

    I've been absent for awhile and a special thank you to those who've text me or messaged me, making sure I am ok :) I hadn't shared this on VMB, because it sucks... my dad is dying and has end stage cancer (started as prostate and has metastasized to his bones and now brain). As such, I've been noticeably absent from a lot of my favorite things... this board, travelling, etc... I'm sure you understand.

    I wanted to reach out... knowing a lot of you have businesses... I do consulting work in the Talent space and am hoping to beef up my consulting work so that I have a bit more flexibility to help my mom and my dad out (I'm a total daddy's girl). My parents chose to love me and chose to give me a fabulous life... and for that, I'm forever grateful!

    My website is: www.tarafuriani.com and if your business could benefit from my services either short or long term... I'd love to discuss how we might work together!

    I miss everyone, I miss Vegas... but I'm so thankful to still have my dad and to be able to help him fight :)

    To Better Days!

    So sorry to hear about your dad MrsFuri. My thoughts are with you and your family.

    Good luck with the consulting business. Knowing how put together you are, you would be a great asset to any business.

    You make your Dad proud, and it seems like you two are a perfect Father/Daughter combination.

    Having been thru that four times with family members, cherish every breath and be sure to ask the questions you have never asked before or just rehash the good times. Prayers with you and your family.

    Thank you MrsFuri for sharing during such a difficult time, sending prayers and positive thoughts to you and your family.
    In this circle of life - just as your father and mother cherished and nurtured you, you now are called on to do the cherishing and nurturing - what a blessing that you have each other.

    (I have been missing your fashionista reports - now I understand).
    Yes, to better days!

    Sending prayers from Wisconsin. Your parents should be proud to have such a wonderful, caring daughter--a fitting testament to how well they did raising you! Wishing you continued peace and strength...

    I'm so sorry to hear that. I know it's not easy, but know you have a lot of people thinking, and sending good thoughts your way.

    Just give him a big hug for all of us. He obviously raised a great lady.

    You guys are all wonderful andI truly thank you for your kind words and prayers. We are fighting and will keep doing so...

    I will likely not be coming out, as planned, this weekend... We had a tough few days the past couple and some hospital visits. Best, I think, to lay low.

    I'm so fortunate to have you guys... Thank you, once again!
