Oh Valerie HOW BEAUTIFUL !!!!!!
Please give your Dad an extra big huh from both of us.
What a WONDERFUL WONDERFUL experience it must have been for your
parents and yourself to be able to make that song coming alive again
and for you to be able to materialize it.
I will keep it so that Henk and I can read it again.
Valerie you not only have enriched us with the sign and dance writing
but now as well with your sharing this fantastic experience with us.
Thank you soooo much,
Henk and Tini.
