Dear "family" at Friendship Home.
The most beautiful place in Manila for me is right
there on Espiritu Street with you. You have share with me
your enchanting smiles, your lyrical voices, your delightful
laughter, along with many a confused look. Bro. Luis told me
that you'd steal my heart. You didn't! I happily gave it
away piece by piece, week by week but somehow you made it
grow back bigger and stronger than it ever was. I will
always think of you and wish that you find something you
love to do and that you are brave enough to do it. Bro. Luis
has, I know.
I will miss each and everyone of you!

P.S. My American accent isn't so strong when I write and
I speak much slower on paper.
