    As much time as he spends there, it wasn’t too difficult. Do all cardiologists eat that many Big Macs?

  3. Aaron Hoefen says:

    It’s difficult to see Dad on the other side of that same McD’s table!!!

    Hi Bret and family!
    You are having such an amazing adventure. Thank you for your wonderful blog. I feel like I’m traveling along with you! Sorry it’s been cold, but it beats what you left behind here in Rochester. Just wanted you to know that I think of you often and am praying for you every day. Keep riding, and enjoy the beautiful Keys! (Peter suggests trying Cuban conch salad)

    We wish we would have know that you were making this trek as we live only about 3 miles from Lou’s Blues and we have visited there and have a great deal of fun there. Hope your journey is a safe and memorable one and we wish you God’s speed and you will be in our prayers and we will be anxious to hear how you are doing and about your adventures. Love Jean and Ernie

    Ya know, somewhere I still have a picture of you and I wading in the reflection pool in Washington DC. Going to Ocean City, Maryland with you guys was one of the best trips of my life!
    Although a few years ago the secret service came looking for it, I managed to keep it hidden, along with my other weapons of mass destruction. When I find it, I’ll post it.

  11. Beth and Matt says:

    Love the pictures. You guys are always in our thoughts and prayers.

    I worked with you in Nuclear Engineering Services when you were first hired at RE Ginna. I thought you were a smart kid with a wonderful smile and I was disappointed when you left us to go to Ops. I’ve been following your CCS journey and have thought about you and prayed for you but never taken the time (not sure you’d remember me either) to let you know that your attitude toward your life is an inspiration to me. Sincerely, Karen

    Hi Bret! I am Michelle’s best friend and I have been following your blog. (Love the food pics btw) I feel like we may have met at Michelle’s wedding? Michelle and Mario came to visit my husband and I in the adks this past weekend and I had a mix CD playing of my favorite songs. Edward Sharpe came on and she knew the song and she said that you liked the band too! I am going to see them in concert this Thursday in Buffalo. Not sure where you are right now, but if you are up for it, its a free concert starting at 6pm! I think of you often and continue to believe in your strength. You can do this. Take care (and maybe see you Thursday 🙂 Kristin

    Every photo is my favorite because each tells it’s own story about the people in your life
    who bring you so much happiness. You are surrounded by so much love. Thank you for sharing your many photos … I feel like I know your wonderful family through them!

    Shannon and Bret, it is with a smile that I read of your wonderful trip and the pictures you shared and then with tears over the struggles you’ve had to endure. Though many years and miles separate us, I still remember the passion for life and energy you both brought to it. I pray for strength as you go through each hour of the day. Love You Both!!! Sue Hill
