AAA what a sweet tribute and how clever of you Cari to think of 30 things nobody knows about Lance.
He really is a good man. I'm not at all surprised that he was called to be in the bishopric. Also he has an amazing wife.
Oh yeh...I'm with Petra on the English Chocolate...way better than american plastic chocolate!
