    Absolutely awesome is your family’s tradition and sense of sacred responsibility to educate and inspire. I would love to visit your Ranch. Family from NYC and loving Dallas and cherishing dear friends originally from Houston.
    Can you have one of your assistants reach me, please. Love and respect for Land and love of horseback riding is in our family too. …And now I know why Fort Worth was so dear in my heart and I am so attached and visit frequently. Houston is next.. I pray and hope. Thank you for all your family has done to keep knowledge flowing. Your dear Maman is so ever smiling in heaven and her spirit and angel wings wrapped around you. We extend our deepest sense of respect and appreciation for your family and you especially for your immense fortitude and beauty. I have a sculpture which I intended for the Schomburg in Harlem but I would like to gift it to your Ranch for the children to see and be inspired….Voila, thank you so very very much.
