Terry: After gleaning pleasure from yet another one of your articles, I felt compelled to write. Your writing style is such a refreshing change. Just wanted to let you know that you are making quite a difference. Looking forward to more - and thanks!

Terry: Do me a favor: Tell your parents for me they did one heck of a job. You are such a gift to this old world. I thank you for sharing so much through the written word, for truly, you have touched me, deeply and often.
