Joe - it has been so exciting for me and your uncle to follow your progesss. And, to think you will be in nearby Madison, now that we live in Chicago. We really want to formulate a weekly visit plan. We'll happily sleep on the floor in your new digs. Maybe we could move a few supplies in when we come to Graduation! Do you have any appropriate dishes for our dogs? Everyone says Madison is fabulous.

Alll kdding aside, we are tremendously proud of you and your successes. We look forward to watching your life unfold. And, continuing to be a part of it - even at a slight distance. Many blessings.
