Mailbag - October 2014
I received The Buzz today, and I am so thankful for your fabulous article [With Little Warning: Ovarian cancer first felt like stomachache, by Michelle Casas Groogan, September 2014]. You were able to take our conversation and share the very personal stories of myself and Cathy Lang – our experiences, treatment and our hope for the future. As well, the relevant information of ovarian cancer, both the statistics and symptoms, were communicated in a way that I am certain will save lives. I am grateful to The Buzz Magazines’ commitment to raising awareness of this disease that takes the lives of so many of our mothers, daughters and sisters.
Blessings to you and your family and to everyone who works with The Buzz.
Editor’s note: Thank you to you and to Cathy for sharing your stories in such an open way. Also, here’s a reminder of the Buzz-sponsored Homes of Distinction home tour, which will raise money for the Judith Liebenthal Robinson Ovarian Cancer Foundation. Davis Builders is constructing an impressive 6,000-square-foot home at 5308 Woodway Drive that will be open Thursdays-Saturdays 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sundays noon-5 p.m. Nov. 6-23. Tickets are $10 at the door. See homeofdistinction.com.
Private plane takes less time
I’d much rather use my own plane [Taking Flight: When the plane is your own, by Cheryl Ursin, September 2014] for a four-hour flight than take my chances with a commercial airline for a purported two-hour flight. If you include the mandated check-in and security procedures, and the inevitable delays, the time to destination works out about the same. That’s if your flight isn’t cancelled! When was the last time, after a commercial flight, that you were in your rental car and off the airport premises 10 minutes after landing?
Issue was a keeper
It was a thrill to open The Memorial Buzz to Sharon Brier's Rumor Has It section [September 2014] and see a picture of our son, Travis, with his beautiful bride, Amanda, on their wedding day. I'm convinced that Sharon, a UT grad, is a closet Aggie given the enthusiastic insight detailed in the accompanying article about the great traditions and devoted Texas A&M graduates sighted at the wedding! We confiscated a number of copies (more than I care to admit) of the September issue from legal (friends, neighbors) and likely illegal sources (the free news rack at Walgreens near Memorial High School) and have redistributed them to Amanda's family in Dallas. We have also saved a few for, Lord willing, Travis and Amanda's children and grandchildren. So, The Memorial Buzz is now playing a new, important role in our lives: family heirloom. What a perfect way to put an exclamation point at the end of a Travis and Amanda's wonderful wedding celebration! Thank you.

Thanks for the plant plug
Thank you for featuring the great photos and write ups about our Bulb Mart in your September 2014 West U, Tanglewood/River Oaks and Memorial Buzz issues [Buzz About Town]. We couldn’t be happier.
