What Roice didn’t mention is that he also had one made and sent to me!
It’s one of the most beautiful and personal gifts I’ve ever gotten. I
added a photo to the web site here
<>. You really need to see it in
3D, so if you have any ability to view stereo images, then click the
photo for a stereo viewing applet and select your favorite stereo
viewing mode.

Thank you so much, Roice! You’re the best!!!
