Dear Jarkko & Eija,

Thank you for the very striking, gorgeous photo!

I am so sorry to hear that Eija is ill. I remember when I met both of you for the first time, in Las Vegas in 2010, & I was struck by Eija's beautiful, warm, penetrating eyes, & the lovely intensity of that photo reminds me of her large, dark, lovely eyes.

You are both in my thoughts & prayers, & I wish you & your family peace, comfort & healing in the new year; & I especially pray for a full & speedy recovery for Eija.

Happy Holidays to all. Thank you for the beautiful Ice/Tulip photos. Jarkko, both you and Eija have been in our prayers-still hoping for a full and speedy recovery.

P.S. I always love to listen to Leonard singing Silent Night. I listen every Christmas Eve as well.
