  1. I am thrilled and overjoyed to see the photos of the Idyllwild Brew Pub in action. Great to see Frank, Lori, Geoff and Michael. I miss all of my old friends in Idyllwild. I wish I could be there to join in the fun. I wish you the best success in this new adventure. I also want to thank Frank and Lori for their wonderful Christmas voicemail. It really lifted my spirit. I love you so much and miss you.
