Congratulations to John and Kelly! Benjamin is a wonderful name. :)

Congradulations to you and Kelly.
As a pilot, it boggles my mind that you have been so successful at everything you have done.

God Love you both and have a very happy Thanksgiving.

So happy for the entire family! Blessings to all of you!

Kelly and I will both be 56 when Lil' Benny graduates and will no doubt be in the movie industry as well. I will be anxiously waiting.
