On November 30, 2005 I received my brown belt!! I absolutely can’t believe how wonderful this feels!  It will take years before I will be able to test for black and develop the sort of focus, discipline and knowledge required, but the thought that I have exceeded my goals in karate warms the very heart of my soul!

  1. Congratulations on a job well done! I can only imagine your dedication and hard work.This comment is not really for "Me Too", I send this note because I know of no other way to contact you. You say you knew his heart through his paintings and his family…..I believe that I know your heart. Always helping others, always caring, always teaching and always kind. Jack Is my Dad and I just wanted to thank you for your kind thoughts and to thank you for taking the time to write them down and send them to my family. We have recieved hundreds of cards and notes and prayers from many people but yours has especially touched me. I wonder what brought you to my brothers site that day, and I wonder what made you leave a note about a man that was a stranger to you ? I to am an artist…inspired by my Dad many years ago, he was very talanted and he touch alot of people in his life, I am so very proud of him. It has only been a month since my Dad\’s been gone and the grief is still as raw today as it was then, but every day I read your comment and every day it feels a little better.I wish to know your name and I wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season and keep writing, it is important, I know that for sure.SincerelyCathy
