I am SO glad you found me on here. Yes it is me, Lisa...my son was with my mom and I. I had written Kahli asking for your names so I could see if you were on here but haven't heard back yet. How are you? I'm sure you are going through the same roller coaster of emotions as I am. I'm sure you guys are going to PIR, have you reserved your rooms yet? I am trying to find a cheep flight...no luck yet. I would love to hear how your daughter is doing, she is such a sweet girl. It's too bad they are not in the same division, just 1 number off;) I got one letter from Kahli so far, aside from the form letter. She sounded ok, she has 2 jobs...just cant figure out what one of them is. She says she is head PO and Mail PO (I understand that one). Please keep in touch, it feels good being able to talk to another mom with same experiences. Maybe we can meet for lunch one day! Take care,
