First off, Papa and I love the Christmas card. Papa's so happy you used his favorite. And the list--well there are no words to tell you how proud we are of you for first thinking of doing it, then organizing it, and then pulling the whole thing off. It is a red letter day for all of you to cherish for years to come. And Reesey, you always melt our hearts and everyone else who truly knows you and all you have been through. God Bless All of You!
