Hi Laura, I don't know you but saw the article in the Boulder Daily Camera. After 24 years of marriage, I found out 3 years ago that my wife had a severe case of bipolar illness. I, like many, had no idea what the illness was about or how it can effect a person, family and friends. I am sorry to hear aboout Shawn but give you great praise for doing what you and your daughter are doing with the bike ride. Best of luck!

06/13/11

Lisa Gillespie

Best wishes on your ride! Take lots of photos and enjoy your time together - it's precious.

As you ride, know that our love, pride, and support are in the wind that surrounds you every minute of every day. Love, Dorrie, Ethan, Ben and Becca
