One day I shall experience what true friends have meant
to me, what I don't know in words, I wish I could! We all in some way take from and receive from or express some
of the best from others. I have been lucky. I've had what most intellects would say the opportunity to steal,
learn, collect, feed and use, all these beautiful people. Now how does one pay them in due respect.
My thanks, my most loving thanks, yes, most of all God bless you. Yes, I think this is what we're about.
