    Your thoughts on today’s sujebct, he can’t hear you now, have been my own for some time and I have shocked/surprsied and amused my close friends recently as I have set out to tell them that I love them, admire them whatever is true. I have decided to do this following my father’s death and writing my thougths down about him; fortunatly he knew much of this, but I reflected on how often we do not stop to tell those closest to us what we think and how we value them.It is a good experience and releases the other person to be open too. Hopefully it will be a while before either my friends or I die and therefore this should not be a one off event but repeated rom time to time.thank you

    my thought s and prayers are with all of you
