Greetings my dear friends!
I received your letter with the New Year greetings, thank you very much. I also wish you health and may God bring you the very best of everything!
I will of course be very grateful to you for your help, since our life is very difficult, my pension allows me to buy only bread and milk and to pay for the communal services, and I am already an old and ill person. My legs almost don’t work; I practically crawl around the apartment. Again thank you very much for the greetings and letter.
May you be written in the Book of Life.
I hope you receive this letter.
