That is a nice touch Larry, the stars on the first Easter
Larry Bliss: It's comforting to know the stars will outlast us...
So that means he's no longer on the cross, Larry?! smile
Larry Bliss: You know the answer to that, Ginnie... smile

A time to bow Larry.
Larry Bliss: Yes.
Stunning and sadly appropriate hearing the news of the latest shooting in your country
Larry Bliss: Thank you for the sympathy, Bill. I wish I knew what was happening to us... sad
That is a favorite part for me, along with the gold.
Larry Bliss: It is the main attraction, so to speak...
...and not many people know that (unless they've read the brochure) smile
Larry Bliss: I always try to read the directions smile

This is such an amazing cathedral and the fact that we saw it built makes it even more special. I love the modern but also the symbolism and nothing is 'overdone'.
Larry Bliss: Thanks, Astrid. I plan a return trip.
