Coverage Day 15: Release…and Rogues’ Gallery

And like that, it’s done.  Words cannot describe how I’m feeling tonight.  Dead tired, relieved, joyful at the end, and full of incredible emotion at saying goodbye to everyone I met at the garage.  Here we are, my team:

I really cannot think of anything to say, other than to thank all of my family and friends for being so incredibly supportive during these past two weeks.  It sounds so banal but I truly could not have done this without all of your love and encouragement.  And thank you to the Powers that Be for making today such a beautiful summer day.  The sky was amazing this morning driving to Rockland, and the view from the TZ coming home was crystal clear, I could see for miles both to the north and the south.

In lieu of words,  I thought I would just put up a gallery and let you see some of the faces behind the names I’ve been dropping in these posts, and some unmentioned but still worthy of seeing.  These are some of the most wonderful people I know.  Brothers in arms.  My garage.
