Dear Ann:

At the January 26th meeting of the HSAPB and the SAA Foundation, a
commitment was made to reestablish the Spanish Military Hospital.

I would like to thank you, sincerely, for your assistance,
support and willingness to serve on the Advisory Board for this project.

In pursuit of our commitment, we would like to meet to define the
concept, design, marketing, interpretation and implementation of
the Hospital.

Dear Ann:

Thank you so much for coming to the meeting the other day.
I was so excited to see the interest we generated, and look forward
to working with everyone.

Enclosed is the material we discussed. Please let me know the earliest
I can come out and spend some time visualizing what is there. While early
Alzheimer's has deprived me of my photographic memory, my visual memory
still is great...some days. If I see it, I usually don't forget it!

Once again, thank you so much for your assistance.

Dear Ann:

Well, we finally opened. I can't begin to thank you for all you
help and support you have extended. I hope you can come over
shortly and see the fruits of our efforts. I am making my list
of corrections that need to be made and dread opening the cases.
I designed them so that it would take a thief with some good
tools and lot of time to get into them; the same goes for
anyone...even me!

Our opening was a great success and received wonderful coverage.
The paper was even kind enough not to bring in the HSAPB business,
which has been an absolute nightmare and worsens daily.

Let's hear from you when you get a chance, and, once again, thank
you so much!
