    Devotion

    I recently attended a funeral for the son of an old friend who was born with cerebral palsy and lived a very full 30 years. Jeff was one of the sweetest kids I've ever known with an infectious smile and an absolute joy to be around. This video has probably been around the internet for a while and it may have even been posted before, but I think it's worth seeing again. As 50+'s the vast majority of us are parents and can certainly appreciate the love and devotion of this father towards his son. I'm sure it will wrench your hearts as it did mine.
    I wouldn't be surprised if DnvrFox knows these guys. I hope the link works.

    I first learned about "Team Hoyt" a few years ago and have been amazed and inspired by their accomplishments.

    I'd seen that video many times before. I'm so sorry Jeff passed away.
