Many thanks to all of you who so generously responded to my friendly appeal. It was humbling to see so many people joining together in this way. One person even donated the Amazon gift voucher that his daughter had given him for Christmas – he and his daughter agreed that there would be “no greater joy” than to pass the gift on to Byron.
Anyway, we’ve raised much more than I had anticipated – the total is:
So we’ll let Byron choose some new books to that value, and I’ll tell you later which books he has chosen. Thanks again for your kindness and generosity – and thanks above all for your prayers for Byron’s full and speedy recovery.
