I truly don't have words. You've done a beautiful job throughout this project and the video promo leaves me speechless. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and I know my dad thanks you. He had a way bragging when his girls did anything that made him especially proud and I know and can feel how proud he is of me, finally. For the first time I feel a peace about his passing. Thank you! - Dreama Collins
