      Wish I knew … we have been having family crises this week with a sick co-publisher/chief photographer … so I couldn’t get there, much as I had hoped to photograph them for a “happening now.” I checked Jessica’s website and no update. Hope it was a great success and that her forthcoming treatment is too … TR
