I'd love to know who they are and be able to express my gratitude. It's a big sacrifice, regardless of whether their loved one would have been able to make it or not. It's a huge sacrifice and it's hard. It takes a real loving person to be able to do that.

It's the best gift any mother or father could have, not to see their child stop a couple of times up a flight of steps and to be able to do whatever everybody else is doing. I don't need anything else.
