    Mam, Jeff…. You can write ! Thank you for sharing this, and for sharing you Dadahood with so many of us for so long. Diabetes stinks, but we are all blessed to have your family helping us all.

    Jeff & Brenda – you have done so very much for our children – my daughter has benefited directly as have so many others from your ‘world view’ of T1D ..
    Meeting you at FFL UK 2009 confirmed everything I had been arguing for ..
    My daughter is now pumping and CGM’ ing full time – she has improved her grades to the point that she is now registered as”gifted ” and her confidence has increaseed by 100 % – and FFL and her friends she has met from FFL mean SO much
    You and Laura Billetdeaux -You know not what you do ..:)

    We are experiencing two firsts this year: our daughter’s first week at diabetes camp and our first Friends For Life conference.

    Happy Father’s Day, Jeff. And thanks for your passion for connecting families.
