      1. There are no words and yet so many words to capture what you have accomplished… sharing, inspiring, motivating, spreading joy and encouragement and kindness for humanity for those with challenges most of us will never understand. And yet we get great understanding from their strength, fight and determination. Thank you Bill and Amy for shining your light on them, and their light on us. As I say, “Perpetuate the Positive. BE part of the Good Sports Story.” you do and you are, to the nth degree. “) Jane
