Two weeks before our dinner with the Smileys, I wanted to do something very unique and special for the family. I had this crazy idea that I didn't think would work out but I went with it anyways. Thanks to the help of Senator Susan Collins' office, I was able to reach Dustin Smiley, who is deployed with the US Navy for 13 months. I shared my plan to make a special video for R2-D2 to broadcast for the family and he loved it. He was able to make a short video and send it to me. Thanks to my extremely talented friend, Kiernan McMorrow, he processed the video to look identical in format and style to that of the Princess Leia hologram R2 played in the original Star Wars movie. Here's Dustin's video message, converted into a hologram my R2-D2 played for the family tonight.
