I have just received this email from Pedro 20:00hrs 21Feb14

Hola Ralph, ante todo es mi deseo que te encuentres bien de salud ya que es lo mΓ‘s importante que tenemos.
En segundo lugar informarte que hoy he recibido tu carta con los sellos que has conseguido. Muchas gracias por el interΓ©s que has tenido y las molestias ocasionadas para conseguirme estos sellos.
En cuanto a tus amigos, comunicale mi agradecimiento por la repuesta que han tenido para enviar los sellos, con los cuales he aumentado un poquito mi colecciΓ³n y a los que les doy mil gracias, y aΓΊn sin conocerlos, al ser tus amigos, yo tambiΓ©n los consideros amigos mios.
Con cariΓ±o, recibe un abrazo de tu amigo
Pedro Álvarez

Hi Ralph foremost is my desire to find you in good health as it is the most important thing we have.
Secondly inform you that I received your letter today with the stamps you’ve collected. Thank you very much for the interest you’ve had and inconvenience to get me these stamps.
As for your friends, Communicate my thanks for the response they have had to send the stamps, with which I increased my collection a bit and I give you a thousand thanks, and even without knowing, being friends, I also consideros my friends.
Love, gets a hug from your friend
Pedro Alvarez

Just you thinking about it is so welcome to me. I know how much turmoil you are going through at this time, so don’t worry. What’s important is you sorting your life out ….. then send me a card. Okay ? Big hugs. Ralph xoxoxox πŸ˜€
