    And speaking of, do we know what time you are going to be speaking today? Even a ballparkish estimate would help me plan my afternoon.

    Aw Tim!
    You nailed it today! I was in tears most of the time simply because you spoke so beautifully, passionately, purposefully. You made it look effortless. Will, the “Angels”, and your family inspire you. Today, you just made the world a little better place for your son… really, for us all. What a marvelous win/win.

    Blessings to you!
