Thanks, Kerry. I didn't know Travis myself. But I sure know his son who my daughter plays with every single day. We will be much more alert to his needs going forward. And their family is certainly in our prayers.

It's a facebook contest, so I think so. I don't think you can even see the designs without signing in. Though I'll be glad to post a preview of each in an upcoming post.
