I have a lot of folks I know, all written in a book, and every year at the holiday time I go and take a look, and that is when I realize that these names are in a part, not of the book they are written in, but of my heart. And while you may not be aware of any special link, just meeting you shaped my life more than you can think. For once you’ve met somebody, the years cannot erase the memory of a pleasant word or of a friendly face. For we are but a total of the many folks we’ve met, and you happen to be one of those I prefer not to forget. And whether I have known you for many years or a few, in many ways you have had a part in shaping the things I do. So every year when the Holidays come, I realize anew, one of the biggest gifts life can give, is meeting folks like you. So may the holidays leave it’s richest blessings in the heart of you and yours.
Happy Holidays to all!!
