Just seeing the picture of their smiles, so proud of their efforts, made Bill and I burst into tears. And Lisa's email about it all left us simply speechless:

Your family has inspired us to be better, to do better...We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping us realize what the really important things in life are; and now we will continue to pass this message on.
