I hope I am not too late for the printout. Thanks for doing this, Dan.

Happy Birthday to you, Jean. You are one of the best treasures this world has ever had. Your kindness, time, and effort in sharing with us has been deeply appreciated, fun, and your postings are a big part of the best of Mudcat's legacy. Thank you.

I shall never forget your kind words about my book and also your sister's sweet, clear, angelic voice (so like your own) as I listened to her tape the first night after open heart surgery. It was not an easy night and I am convinced I made it through it with the guidance of love and beauty in the songs and her singing. What blessings...both of you.

So, one more turn around the sun. May your day be filled with family and friends, happines, peace and tranquillity. Thank you, again, Dear Lady Jean!

With much love,

Kat LaFrance
