Thank you again for your generous and loving hospitality. You have truly
made the experience of being in Egypt now for the second time like coming
home. For that I am eternally grateful, Egypt will be a place for us to
return to time and time again.
I hope you will remember to pass on the Where Peace Lives information to
your sister when you get time, you know, in between the million other things
you are doing... Ha, ha, that was a bit of a joke. Sorry, lousy American
humor. I would so like to come back and continue to work in Egypt on this
important project we are creating.
Can you also forward me Hany's email. We keep forgetting each time to get
one another's info before I leave and I wanted to send him some digital
photos directly as a thank you for his guiding us around. Please also ket
Mohamed know it was a pleasure to have him as our guide to Suez and that we
iwsh him continued success in his guiding with Lady Egypt.
Miss Jessica can;t stop laughing about how much fun she had. She had no idea
what Egypt would be like and I think was a little nervous because it was her
first time to such a far away place and she never felt safer and more cared
for in her life and she wanted me to pass that on to you.
Lastly I just want to thank you for kindness and the way you make each
person who comes to you feel welcomed and appreciated in a way that is so
rare to find in the world these days. You will go great places in your life
Mohamed because it is what you are destined to do and you will always be
well taken care of because you take such good care of others.
All peace and happiness to you always,
Where Peace Lives
Thank you for the email. The kids and I arrived home on Friday 2-Nov and Janiece is still in the US with her mother. Janiece and her mother need this time together to help each other struggle through all of the emotional turmoil that this was brought about.
The way that you help us will always be remembered. You and your entire team supported us more that we ever expected. If we are an example of how you treat other that don't have a major crisis like we did then it is easy to see why all your reviews of so positive. Everyone on the Lady Egypt staff has my total respect and adoration for the effort they showed to my family.
Currently we are trying to get a trip back to the US so we can spend Christmas with our family. Then we will be looking to book our remaining trip with you.
Thanks again for making so many great memories of Egypt for us.
