Thank you freinds for listening and for being there.
I know we may disagree on many things but we can all agree on our love for Disneyland and her siblings.

I pray and hope that we find solutions to all our troubles and cures to all our illnesses so that we may be able to live a happier and healthier life.
As Ned Washington so beautifully wrote
"When you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires will come to you
If your heart is in your dreams, no request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star as dreamers do
(Fate is kind, she brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of their secret longing)
Like a bolt out of the blue, fate steps in and sees you thru
When you wish upon a star, your dreams come true"
