  1. Do you know this tells such a story? I could almost follow your emotions while reading this.

    I have to say, I hope i age as gracefully as you. I was shocked the first time you told me your age I thought you were half that! And you are very active and healthy. But, we all get old. Our bodies are just shells. Its your character that matters most. Don’t forget that.
