    Wow - just wow! So much love for his wife - wish we saw this more often.

    And the kindness of the group running the contest is so wonderful to see.
    Just My Opinion, of course!

    When you find yourself in the position to help somebody, do not feel burdened. Rather, feel happy and blessed because God is answering that person's prayer through you. In that moment, you are God's Angel - His door to reach through and bring light to someone who is struggling in the darkness.

    Be God's Light. Be God's love. Be an answered prayer. Be God's Door.

    My daughter and a co-worker both bought the song after they saw the video.

    ABC evening news made him their Person of the Week, yesterday. The whole thing brought me to tears, but I also got a good chuckle out of the grandson reporting that Fred had asked his family "who is this Justin Timberlake, I just passed him on iTunes." (yesterday the song had hit #5 on the iTunes chart)
