  • There is something very special about you and it becomes almost impossible for anyone not to be influenced by it. I am sorry that I could not be there from the beginning but it was very important for me to listen to the proceedings. Values are fast fading and I was able to see it in you and thats enough for me to have liked every bit of the day. Congratulations!!! I will be away for 10 days but I will give you a call once I am back.
