“Your camp counseling book arrived a while back and I wanted you to know how much I appreciate your having shared it with me. The humor, sensitivity, and real caring show through clearly all the way through. I hope it receives the recognition and wide use that it deserves. May your life continue to be a celebration and love and wisdom. Warmly,
