A couple months later I met up with Karmen and Connie for a cup of coffee. It was the first time the three of us had been together since “The Reveal”.
For a while we chatted about our lives, our kids, how busy we were at our respective jobs. You know – the usual ‘stuff’ friends talk about when they connect after a bit of time has passed.
Then Karmen looked at me and asked: “Would you do it again?”
“YES! ~ In a Heartbeat!” I responded without hesitation.
“Seeing this young man, who was dealt such a devastating card ~ yet, he approached his future with selfless courage and strength.”
“And then to be included on a special Make A Wish Team.” I continued, “Where our contribution was able to lift his spirits and help defuse some of the pain that he was dealing with.”
“This has deeply touched my life ~ how could it not?”
I’d absolutely do it again!”

“Thank You!” to the other members of Nate’s ‘Wish Team’ ~ Each of you, along with this bittersweet journey, will never be forgotten.
A couple Special ‘Shout Outs’
As you heard me say to you multiple times throughout this project – What you do is amazing! ~ I could not do what you do.
Thank you for asking me to be part of such an awesome team.
My inner geek thanks you!
Your connecting Karmen and I, was my beginning on this bittersweet journey ~ and for that I thank you as well!
