    I do not have much to say ie short of words upon seeing and reading about you and your pieces. My friendly and brotherly advise is that, ……………………………….. in fact, I will rather pray. Yaa Allah, grant Jajah good health and shower your bounties on him, he is your servant and You his Lord, for if you do not protect him, no one can do that for us. More snow under your ski my brother. Salaam.
