    to Valentine Logar, Red Dwyer, and you,Raymond-Alexander Kukkee, a shining salute to strength of character, not to mention a whole lot of talents..merci!

    • Such wonderful, kind comments, Nadine, of course, we’re always happy to feel that we have made even a small difference in someone’s lives, whether it be by encouragement,inspiration, or example. We can always progress with our projects if we persist regardless of what is happening in our lives. You are so right, tenacity and focus-are key. Nadine, YOU can do it! “:) ~R
