 Dear Genie,
I struggled for two months trying to find the words. I was going to write you a letter. Then I was going to write you a poem, story or thank you note.Today when I uploaded the picture to start the draft, it came to me.
Thank you, you have given me courage to live my life, the strength to live my live and hope to want to.
Love always Cookie

  1. What a sweet and thoughtful way to say ‘thank you’ Cookie. I love it.
    I think, for me, giving time and love is the best way to say ‘thank you’ but who doesn’t love to see it in print and hear it in words?
    Thank you,Cookie for all you’ve done for all of us with AS–for your encouragement, love, hard work, dedication, sweet spirit, and kind heart. I doubt you’ll ever realize just how much you’ve done for us or how much we appreciate you. Much love.
