Hi Slovie,I was looking through my saved emails and when reread this one I realized I never committed on this one . Well,simply said , the paper you found that your father wrote on was a message that ALL who saw this video should take it as it is. Don't try to analyze it . Use it.

I am mixed with emotions and cannot believe how far my friend Jose D. Fernandez, has touched humanity. He was a light that was removed to early and that smile. All he wanted was to see his baby daughter be born. This has really hit home for us in MIAMI, FL not because of his Talents but as you said-- his escape from persecution to make a better life, G-D BLESS and SHALOM

Blessings to you and your family!

Thank you for such an inspiring piece! May you and your family have a meaningful touched by your Ima's special words and actions! You follow in her footsteps as a gifted writer and speaker! Your words are truthful and important and delivered with sincerity and grace.

All the very best this Yom Tov and in the year to follow,
