avatarDear James,
I have spoken with Dolores several times since her return home. She is slowly recuperating as the trip was a real challenge for her. I had no idea she would require such special care and attention as I haven't seen her in over three years and I'm sorry I wasn't there to lend a helping hand. I realize that sometimes Dolores can be demanding and outspoken but I'm sure you were able to cope!
Nevertheless, Dolores can't stop "singing your praises" and raving about the wonderful care and service you gave her on the trip, helping her in every possible way.
Thank you for your many updates and beautiful pictures which I thoroughly enjoyed and will treasure. As you know, I have been to Germany several times in the past and my only real disappointment was not seeing my family one more time. But Dolores was so impressed, she hopes to return to Germany so perhaps I'll still have an opportunity to see my family sometime after all. Time will tell.
You have done such an outstanding job and I certainly commend you for your expert attention to details and the care you extended. You went beyond the call of duty as travel guide and I want to express my personal and sincere appreciation. I have already told friends and family about you and even though I wasn't there, I would certainly highly recommend you.
Perhaps some day our paths may cross. Life gives us many disappointments but we move on. I am just about fully recovered from my bout with pneumonia and ready to get on with my life. Take care, enjoy your travels. Bette
