We have hooted and hollered together, had our AHA! moments. We ugly cried together and we did our gratitude journals…i thank you all for your support and your trust in me. I thank you for sharing this yellow brick road of blessings.”
“From you, whose names I will never know, I learned what love is. You, and this show, have been the great love of my life.”
