I hope you and your family will come out of this tragedy in good health and as safe as possible under the circumstances. Thanks for the messages on your site to keep us all informed.
I'm sure my fellow sketchers will agree that we will do whatever we can to help you through this, with prayers, positive energy, communication and financial contributions. Please take care and do not hesitate to call upon us for help.
If I were in distress, as I'm sure I would be, if I were in Japan right now, I would feel deeply grateful if people came to me for the kind of work I love to do.
It is not necessary to wait for Russ to ask for help, if you are in a position to do it... You can show Russ he is in your thoughts, as well as possibly keep him busy with the work he loves so much:
If you order something, I hope you can be patient if communication and shipping takes longer than usual.
Russ: I hope I am not suggesting something that might actually add stress at this time -- I just think this is what I would want, if I were in your shoes right now.
