This is a very sad post.  I don't understand why it was included, but I will 
pray for those involved.  He seemed such a wonderful boy.  Many times in my 
live I have lived in a way that doesn't deserve the life the boy should have 
had.  It is difficult to understand why.  But according to my beliefs, if he 
was a Christian, it is a reward, for living on this earth, especially under 
the conditions which we live, it is not a difficult choice between here and 
paradise.  And I still love my life here.  My concern is for those who are 
grieving, and I can't do much but pray for them.  I will.  I am very sorry 
for your loss.

Right now, I am not sure if Wine is properly installed.  I keep updating my 
computer, so if things are missing, I don't know why.

I am also aware of that, however, it tried to install when I knew from another 
attempt indicated missing files, that the missing files are the probable 
reason.  The package is not a necessary thing, and I don't even gamble.  I 
just got interested in the play when I saw a TV program about it.  I am 
always alone and thought it might be a way to spend a little time.
