Well it was one of those things like a good trip or a special camp that was so rewarding inside and out that it was ashamed it came to an end. Well the relationships and and memories of the soul sharing we did will never weaken. I cherish what I learned about my group and myself and I hope you all get a chance to enjoy a similar happening. I leave you with a saying I love and it goes like this. We are all faced with great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations. Have a blessed day. Oh BY THE WAY, the leader of that course who allowed us to be ourselves and yet taught us so much was TOM agh Tom somebody , man wait it will come to me,,,,,, oh ya Tom Schwolert. I think about he and Mel and the kids often and I always smile. Have to go now getting weepy lol take care.

    • Mark Vedder…wow, what a great surprise. And what wonderful, kind, insightful words. I will NEVER forget the incredible moments we shared. I may have never told you but you were an inspiration to me too. Thanks for being an important part of my journey.
