This letter has been overdue for sometime! I needed to let you know what a force you have been in our lives . . . spiritually,
medically and emotionally!
Especially for me . . . for without you I would have been long gone, but beside the care and your undying concern for me you
have illuminated my life by just knowing you. I can honestly say I am a better man because of my friendship with you.
I am more compassionate than I might have ever been, and my spirit and soul has been touched by you so many times. I need
to just take care of the gifts you've bestowed upon me and mine. I pray every night for your well-being, and of course,
Katrin and Olga, too.
I believe myself to have been blessed having you in my life and making it a life that is exceptional while trying to re-light
the lamp of excellence.
I love you, Michael, and I am so proud to call you "My friend!"
