    Oh Larry, My heart has been with you since i heard it briefly on the news the night of the fire. This video is great. When you said, “I can’t wait to be making soap again,” you brought tears to my eyes. Wishing you all the best and it sure sounds like the new place was the ‘gift’ amidst the charred misfortune that you have endured and risen above!

    Hey Larry!
    My condolences on your temporary set back. It’s great that you’re making it a stepping stone rather than a stumbling block. You certainly have come amazingly far from your humble beginnings making lavendar soap in your kitchen! Best o’ Luck, bro.
