NOW that I’m in my sunset years of life I am glad to have this opportunity to convey my sincere gratitude for all the blessings you afforded me during what could be considered a trying and hazardous life.
Having been born in the early 1940s on a small farm, I, in my formative years together with my school friends, experienced dire circumstances of deprivation in practically all aspects of everyday life.
However, I was fortunate to have a teacher who always ensured that everything possible was done to instil in us the importance of being honest, hard-working and above all to be respectful to our fellow human beings — all of which benefited me through life. Having no opportunity, post-NS to avail of secondary education, I did through long endeavour and prayer, obtain second and third-level education through night school, etc, and consequently avail of a reasonable position in life.
I was fortunate also to have met an angel who for almost 50 years has been my dear wife, and we have been blessed with a brilliant family who have achieved wonderful academic success and positions in life. I also attribute this to your guidance and blessing.
So now in my 70s and after a fulfilling life I remain convinced of your existence and how it was so important for me to keep in constant touch with you always. Thanks Joe Irish Address with Editor
