Hello Gina: Thank you for your comment about my “Soft Rose.” I have enjoyed looking at your
beautiful and thoughtful gallery. Two images stand out in my mind and they are “Palace Riches”
and “Welcome Home Daddy.” Two of the best I have seen in a long time. Please tell this brave
and wonderful man thank you for all of us, we can never repay him and all the others that have
given so freely of themselves. God bless you and your family. Merna
