    Dear Albert,

    Happy birthday, it is good to see you, your family and Alan's family in the photo. I have been talking to Bill and Helen, who updates me on how you are getting on.

    Pray that you keep on recovering.

    It is a huge step forward to be able to come home, during Easter which is a time for rebirth and renewal. Pray that Albert will keep on improving.

    Easter Blessings on you and your family.  I'm so happy to hear that Albert will be coming home.  There really is "no place like home" when it comes to healing!

    I am so pleased with his progress.  Please remember our SAU OT Department can be a resource for you.  We are full of ideas to help overcome barriers to independence.

    We sure miss you around here!  What a joy to read of Albert's progress and recovery.  He's a real walking miracle, and we pray that he will continue to improve until he's back to what he was.  So sorry to know that you have such a distance between you - hope that your times together are extra special.  Know that you are loved and thought about by your friends in CA.  Hugs all around, Rolane
