Great to know you are here on the List again. Hope you enjoyed your
other conference or work you did recently..;-)
maybe you can do a quick video of yourself signing the above sentence
in ASL for a tombstone? Then we can write it together here on the
List...I really appreciate this.
At the NAD Conference, old memories came back to me....the old DAC
members...we used to write by hand! It was so different because when
we had an arrow that blended with another arrow, we didn't have to
wait for Val to add the combination arrow to the IMWA! We just wrote
it and connected any arrows together like that.. Take a look at the
attached diagram...and I will make it better in Photoshop to show you
what I mean...
