“My life is filled with memories of many beautiful people who taught me to love. There are many happy places where I felt friends and family that cares and encouraged me. Everywhere I found good teachers of life. I have discovered that those who are negative are not happy. Even though it is hard to say “good-bye” every friend is a gift that makes an important part of life. Be it in Mexico, in Colorado, in Texas, in Kentucky, in Bolivia, in France, in New York, in Missouri, in Costa Rica, in Guatemala or Alabama. . . . Friends and family are always near-by. Thank you!”
