JR2, you have summed it up very well. I hated to leave Friday after meeting, visiting and cruising with so many old and new friends. I will suffer withdrawal for a long time. Kathy and Russ certainly outdid themselves as they provided a great event for us fortunate folks who could attend. May God bless them as they look forward to Russ's continued recovery. I have no photos but look forward to seeing some of the thousands that were taken. Many thanks to all involved.
Sadly , I left Saturday night after hugging and shaking hands for 45min. Two days at Lake Norman. What a fine group of folks gathered at Russ and Kathy's. Thank yous are just not enough. Incredible company, food ,water, laughter boats....... I enjoyed seeing all you old friends and especially meeting you new friends. It was great to have more wives come out and really great to hang out with Nathan (fishing champ) Marin and Jenson (swimming champs). Love to all you guys and thank you so much Russ, Kathy and family. We are all so blessed you're here and healthy. Love to all. John
ps. I'll wait till the good photos get posted to see if I have any to add
