Quotes

"I know that just worrying definitely doesn't prevent cancer, so I'm hoping that being pro-active will catch it early. It doesn't have to be a death sentence."
"It's not just a garden anymore," Paul said. "It's more properly an arboretum, with flowers, shrubs and trees, many with signs for the people who donated them."
Is there any way to make that up? "Not normally," Reed said. "The family groups that were set up for the weekend may reschedule, but the bigger groups — family reunions and work groups, they don't reschedule. We lose about 90 percent of them."
