Dear Bob, Monica and Aiyana,
It is time to finally thank you from the bottom of my heart for such a wonderful, unexcelled experience of life in your beautiful Casa and its gorgeous setting. I loved every moment of it. The outings were frosting on the cake, beautifully planned and executed. The casualty of it all added immensely to the charm of being in a beautiful wonderland. I loved the locality of your Casa – the privateness and yet the visibility to the village, river beach and ocean – really a very, very special place you have there and you fully deserve having it!!!
Stan has been so generous with sending and sharing his great photos that now it does not matter that my camera did not function. He took so many of the shots I would have taken also. Your nice and gracious employees will always have a special place in my heart. They prepared such pretty and succulent meals lacking nothing – which, also is part and parcel of your generosity. Outside of their care, I liked the dinners on the beach most of all. Could have eaten there every night!
Bob, I’m still amazed at the virtuosity of your paintings and your artistic abilities seem to have no end. It would have been a treat to also have had you as an instructor. Maybe some other time, if my strength permits me to return. I also love your gentle nature and sensitivity to people and your surroundings. You were just the person I had seen in my mind’s eye from our phone conversation and your web pages. No wonder you and Monica have such an outstanding daughter. I’m sure the other two offsprings turned out as well as she in their own way! When I see young people like Aiyana, I have hope for this world!
Monica, I missed you! I loved the singing birds in the morning and the village sounds and happy music, the early fish-boats starting out – none of it was too much. They were all local life experiences, so natural and welcome to hear. Your decorations of the rooms and throughout the Casa are so warm, so thoughtful, in such good taste – I felt your presence everywhere and thought I knew you from way back when?
Well, you Dear Ones, I thank you all so very much and hope that I shall see you at least one more time – wishing you continued success and the best of health! With all my heart I greet you lovingly,
Friederike” – (Canada)
