Richard shared the letter you sent with me, and I just wanted to thank you for your thoughtfulness. It meant a great deal to him, believe me. Next came the photo book which actually brought tears to my eyes and to his I suspect. We appreciate not only the expert work done on our car, but also your efforts to find a suitable (and worthy) buyer. In the end, it was little sad for both of us, but clearly the time had come to part with that wonderful machine. But I do hope the sale of the Mercedes and our move will not be the end of our relationship with you. You and Richard have been friends for a long time. Happy and Healthy New Year.
