No worries. Anyone else in the Charleston area PM me if you have good eyes and don't mind being in a small hot plane for multiple hours.

Social media is spreading this news clip around. Wonderful story and appropriate headline if news today, but it was from 2005.

I have been waiting for you to make an update. I want you to know your dedication to this undertaking is a fine example of who you are as a person. You Sir are a fine human being and if you ever find yourself near Lake Wales look me up as I would like to shake your hand, buy you a beer. The parents of these boys are lucky to have you as a friend.
Cheers
Abe

John, I have been feeling the same way and have been thinking about you and the boys daily. I haven't written anything because I know this must have been so very hard. All I wanted to say is that I hope you take comfort in knowing that you did all you could have done. You did everything that Perry would have expected you to do. You are more than a good friend to his parents, you are an exemplary friend to Perry and Austin and their siblings. You are a good and kind man. God bless you. xoxo
