Received these comments from Mr. Lake today after sending him your birthday greetings:
“As always, I never fail to be moved by the sincerity and goodwill of all the people who write in with their birthday wishes. As you know whenever I perform I always like to try and meet as many people as possible after the show just to say hello and perhaps have a chance to exchange a few words in the hope that in some way they may create a material bond to something that had previously only existed in a spiritual way through the music. When I receive these birthday messages every year it is a poignant reminder of just how meaningful and important these few moments are.
Thank you once again to you and to all who left messages.
