More messages to keep us going

Here’s another heartening message:

Hi Marlisa!

I just saw an online video clip of your grandpa, and it brought tears to my eyes.  I am a teacher (past, Elementary, currently Adult English as a Second Language) and a Life Coach.  I found your grandfather’s story moving and inspirational!

I just bought four copies of his book – one for myself and three to give as gifts!  Please tell your grandpa that he has a big fan in Santa Monica, CA!

Yours truly, Paula Verbit

    Hi Jim,
    My husband and I live in the Blue Mountains NSW Australia. We have just moved here in January after living by the water for 20 years in the same house. We moved here for me to semi retire and spend more time with my husband who is now 84 and I am 65. We have been married for 41 years this week.

    My sister is visitng us from Melbourne Victoria where I grew up and she brought me an article about you which was in their daily paper called the Age.

    We were all very fascinated with your amazing story and embrace all you were quoted as saying that it is never to late to learn. I woul every much like my husband to share shomeof his life stories which are fascinating and stretch over 3 continents and Span from being in the Airforce from age 14 To sailing many waters both in Canada, Bermuda and Australia.

    Would you like to communicate with him as I am sure you would have many a wonderful story to exchange

    We look forward to hearing back from you, keep learning and sharing

    Kind and warm regards

    Jillian and Patrick McGrath
    Blue Mountains
