“This was an experience of a lifetime and we are all changed by it. I cannot imagine a more trusted and true team than this one. We made magic together and we are bound together in the humanity that has sprung from these endless hours, days, weeks and months of planning. And, of course, those few perfect hours when all the people came and all of the images on the mock-ups became real. Truly wondrous.”
