Many happy returns on your Birthday.

When it seems that chaos and darkness are afoot in this perplexingly beautiful world,
your exquisite music casts a calming ray of light. Thank you.

Thank you too for making Wembley wondrous. Looking forward to the
next time.

May you and the band continue to sparkle :)

Wishing you a very happy birthday, Leonard, and a wondeful year to follow. Many, many thanks for an excellent concert at Wembley, despite the late start; and thanks for caring enough to apologise to those of us who had been inconvenienced by the change of venue.

Happy Birthday Mr. Cohen!

May you always be happy and healthy and surrounded by those you love and who love you. Wishing you back all the joy your music and words have given my husband and myself. Paula's (Star Trek) quote bears repeating. 'Live long and prosper'.

Many Grateful Regards,
