Wow! what a poignant family story of war, revealed by happenstance, one might say, between a father and son and told from the depths of filial love in a son’s heart.  Zanya

You roared onto the stage with this fine piece. I loved this and viewed it from your perspective as I think we are close in age. Your dad was a fine man and made a difference. I hardly knew my dad, and lived a life away from him and his alcoholic lifestyle.

How blessed you are to have such a shining example.

Sending you my best today as always, and best wishes for the upcoming contest,
Sally 🙂
