    Much love to you all today, Bonnie and Tony “You will teach them to fly , but they will not fly your flight . You will teach them to dream , but they will not dream your dream . You will teach them to live, but they will not live your life . Nevertheless , in every flight , in every life , in every dream , the print of the way you taught them will remain ...✨” -Mother Teresa
