**Update - Thank you SO much for all of the good thoughts, hope, and prayers - and for the comments and emails. My brother is safe and sound, thank goodness. He became disoriented during the hike and camped out until morning. He should be back with my sister-in-law and the kids by now. I am so, so grateful. Thank you again!**
My brother went out for a 15 mile hike yesterday and did not return home as scheduled. There has been no word from him, and his jeep has not yet been found by park rangers.
Please keep my brother and our family in your heart and hope for his safe return.
Due to this turn of events, I probably will not have the roses posted tomorrow.
Thanks in advance for your love and hope.
