In addition, HUGE congrats to Steve for being awarded with the Health and Human Services Medal of Honor for his commitment to helping promote organ and tissue donation.

    Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you!!! I’d like to take a moment to thank the Academy, and my Mom & Dad & Sisters for tolerating me throughout the early years — and, of course, Laura for tolerating me through these past 23 years…

    But seriously, Scott… Your camera guy and sound guy and you were incredibly patient while I stumbled over words and/or said a lot of words that needed not to be on a video — you told me we’d be filming for maybe two hours, and four or five hours later we were done… And what you put together from what I said is beautiful and makes me proud and, most important, tells people about Kari… I’m honored to have been a part of this and I think it’s crazy-wonderful that our little “online-short” did so well!!!

    Love, Steve
