Dear Mehmet and Lale
Now that the holidays are over I wanted to take this moment to thank you for a wonderful and gracious stay in your home. The entire experience was relaxing and restful which were two things I needed very much. Needless to say my visit with my son after two years was heightened by your wonderful and warm friendship and the hospitality that you demonstrated not only to me but to other guests that I observed.
I will be returning some time this year and you can rest assured that that Chipper and I will once again come to visit with you one way or another.
Have a wonderful and healthy New Year.
P.S. I went to the Nebraska party Friday evening and mentioned to Bruce that you thought he should receive an Oscar for his performance.
