Saturday, Jan 18th it happened; Grazia came over
to bring me your gift. I knew I could expect something
very special but never ever could I have imagined
this... Gosh, I was told some people would leave
a message, and in all honesty I thought it would
be a few, to count on one hand and some fingers..
All those encouraging and loving words, the memories
that come with each name, be it some more than
others, was and still is dazzling me.

Sarah/Minty, your photo's from all the people
I know who were on the conventions, and those
I knew only by name from the GuestBook have a
face for me now too, it is so cool! as if I have
been there myself. stolen memories but as sweet
as the real thing.
On the computer I got some pictures but cannot
see well so the real ones make it much easier!
and I sure had to giggle about your card!!!! that
little piece of paper 'cause one card full with
text wasn't enough LOL!

Thank you so much for initiating this. After having
read your letter, later after Grazia had left
I couldn't hold it dry... I wish I could hug you
till we both drop, and since that isn't possible
I send you one through cyberspace, HUUUGGGG! Thank
you for the thought, the effort and much much

As you know it's difficult for me to write everyone
back personally but I hope this reaches each of

a very proud and happy person, to have a star
at this specific location, - together with my
big daddy bear Rutger...
to know something from me won't disappear for
a long long time, and to FEEL that it matters
if I give up or not is the greatest gift I ever
