Hello to Felix’s Supporters…
Christmas day is creeping up fast and my annual trek to spend Christmas with Felix will be soon. I am going to write a post in January and will highlight the events of 2015. I just wanted to let you all know, even though communication has been sparse this year, not one has been forgotten. Every name is on my email list so when I go down the email addresses I see your name. Felix is doing good at this time. He likes his new dorm in Dade CI, south of Miami.
I am sending you this poem as our Christmas card. I have edited it to be more personal from Felix and me:
We have a list of people, all written in a book –
And every year at Christmas time, we go and take a look;
And that is when we realize that those names are all a part –
Not of the book they’re written in, but of our very heart.
For each name stands for someone who has crossed our path some time;
And in letters and emails you’ve become a treasured friend of mine.
And whether we have known you for many years or few –
In some way you have had a part in shaping things we do.
So this the Spirit of Christmas that forever still endures –
May it leave its richest blessing in the hearts of you and yours.
MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
WITH OUR LOVE, FELIX and PAT
