“In my life, you are the Number One”Joseph, I am grateful to you for our long and happy life together, which has been, and remains, so full of joy and sadness, cares and pains, love and empathy and mutual respect. You mean such an unimaginable lot to me, growing closer, dearer and more essential to me with every passing year. We have gone, together, through severe afflictions, and have beaten them together.
Thank you for our children, Andrei and Natasha, for always treating my mother with reverent tenderness, for our friends and relatives and for all our wonderful granddaughters.
I would like to wish you sterling good health many times over. To never lose your sense of fun and zest for life. To carry on your fruitful engagement in both the creative and public spheres. And, perhaps, to somewhat more often don rose-tinted glasses.
I love you enormously,
Your ever-faithful wife
