Hi, Devra and John,
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to celebrate with you.
John, I’ve admired your work for many years, and am delighted to hear that you are still hanging in there. I send you my compliments and best wishes.
I can’t think of anyone who is a greater example than you on how to live a life of value creation; integrity; trustworthiness; honesty; compassion; love, and truth.
You’ve stood as a constant reminder to me of these great human attributes as I’ve strived to navigate through the vicissitudes of my own life.
You remain a true giant in my eyes.
May you live as long as you want to live as I am inspired by every moment of your being. Thank you, John, for everything you give us.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, my fellow Aries.
Just a few words to let you know how much I appreciate our acquaintance and respect for each other through the years.
You have been a great role model to me and have opened doors for many of my friends who also have held you in high esteem like Joe Williams, Cannonball Adderley and Wes Montgomery.
