Dear Anna and Rolando,

Thank you so much for all that what you give to me and all your other fans ! You're voices are just incredible and you're acting is fantastic ! You can not imgagine how important you are for me, what a big part of my life you are ! You are the first thing what I'm thinking about when I stand up in the morning and the last thing what I'm thinking about before going to bed in the evening. I have never believed that there will be ever something so "strong" in my life. I hope that I will be able to see you very, very often in the future. I wish you only all the best for today !
