This brings me to tears. I know he probably cried a tear or two. It is really overwhelming.

'You guys are too much!
Overwhelmed.
Will reply to this astonishing kindness when I can find the words.

Love and Blessings,
Leonard'

Jarkko, do you know if Esther got to read our card that we signed for her in Dublin?
Thanks
Olwen

***we don't know but I'd say no; she was in hospital already at the time the card arrived in New York / Jarkko***

Almost in tears about Leonard's reaction. So touching and heartfelt... Thanks to Jarkko for passing Leonard's sentiments along, and of course to Leonard for expressing them. With gratitude - P
