I'm posting this for Mary Marcotte, who had problems with the comment process:

I watched the proceedings on streaming video and was very proud of "our Casey." I share Jody's feelings about the salving effect of knowing that he and Vicki will not be leaving us.

That said, I hope folks in the wider church are listening and appreciating and will find ways to tap into Casey's wisdom.
