Thank you for trusting me with your enchanting Zydeco Shoes as Earl trusted
you with Grand-mere. Ive savored each page and all my senses felt
the joy of the Cajun heart and soul. Though yesterday was cold and snowy
here, I was transported to laughter and singing and dancing with good
people and good food and the warm Louisiana sunshine. What a magnificent
collaborative effort you accomplished. I felt like I was sitting right
beside Earl and he was talking to me and I wanted to reach over and give
him a big hug and thank him for so lovingly sharing his world with me.
Bless you, Alex, for seeing the Vision and bringing it all together.
