Thanks to everyone who participated! And thank you so much, John Pytlak, for being who you are.

We got over 200 responses. They filled three 30"x40" posters, mounted on boards. Those boards were shipped yesterday to John, and were delivered this morning at 10:16am, Eastern.

You can view a PDF file of what we sent.

Thanks, everyone.

My family and I am overwhelmed with the hundreds of good wishes and memories that John Hawkinson was able to gather from my friends on the Internet. Today, a large DHL package arrived on our doorstep. It contained three large mounted posters with kind words and photos from friends on Cinematography.com and other Internet groups that I participate on.

This unexpected surprise brought great happiness and comfort to me and my family, knowing that we are not alone in our current struggle, and that the times that I have been able to help someone on the Internet are long appreciated. Even beyond the contributions to the wonderful posters, the personal notes, cards, and even gifts from my friends here on Cinematography.com and other groups have been very thoughtful.

Thanks to you all. Again, keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

did not think the photo of my son I took and wife added the poem to would be so big on the board. (I should have put our names on it at least)
