"Tony, what a wonderful time I had sharing my story. It was so touching to remember the wonderful family times with my beautiful mom and my wonderful father and my special sisters. What an honor it was to give my story about my family. You have an amazing gift to make someone feel so comfortable about sharing very personal stories. I look forward to hearing more great things about this project and cannot wait to see my personal story in the archives! Bless you Tony, and your family." - Debe Campos-Fleenor
