    Congratulations dear Ryan. You deserved it.
    I was so excited to learn that you worked in Shamshadin. I used to spend my summer holidays there enjoying fantastic nature and kind hospitality of my relatives. I do miss those days.
    My special gratitude to you for your generous activities to support medical sector of the Region. I remember quite well that this sector really needed total renovation/”reanimation”.
    So, once again BRAVO to you!
