The delivery team just called. The delivery team, Bruce and his wife are all in tears because everyone is so surprised and happy. Getting everybody on line with the speakerphone took feat of technology. It took them several minutes to get settled down to even have a conversation. Lauren asked Bruce if the color of the chair was ok, he just laughed and said "of course it is"! Bruce also said, "people never do things like this for us, thank you so much". They are now unloading the truck as we speak.
We ended up getting enough money raised for Bruce to get the lift installed, and hopefully have enough money to finally take his wife out to eat since they have been homebound for so long. They live out in the boonies so it will take a while to get pictures from cell phones sent but we will post them as soon as we get them.
Thank you all so much, it is an honor to be involved in something LIFECHANGING like this. Words cannot express how PROUD we are of America and its people for what you have done.

The money has been picked up by the delivery team. Rolling down the highway heading west, getting ready to head north. They are just outside of Victorville, CA. About 2 hours until arrival. The excitement builds!
