I survived the ceremony with dry eyes, but with possibly the biggest smile on my face. However, when we met up with Big J after the events, he quietly showed me a little something special he had with him on his sleeve, hidden under his gown. There it was, a tiny pin - the American and Australian flags. My eyes were no longer dry, but I was even prouder that although he has spent the majority of his life in the USA, he so proud to be Australian and American.
Congratulations Big J - we love you and you have done us proud yet again.
