    Congratulations Rod! Great to see your smiling face enjoying the day. Let me know what it’s like …… not long for me now and I’m looking forward to the party.
    I love the photos of you all lined up in B1 and beyond; but what happened to B3? You could start a museum.

    It was well worth the drive to be with you and your family and friends. I remember looking over and seeing you surrounded by your family. You were in such delight. Your incredible words about the fragility of life and also it’s robustness really ministered to me. You are a godly man and God has taught me a great deal about humility, love and sacrifice through your example. God bless, Michael
