Many Many Happy return of the day to dear Lily Teacher and Melinda. May God shower his choicest blessings on you two and keep you healthy and happy always. I suppose the retirement is a great news for those who are not in love with their work, but Lily teacher loved teaching, so she will miss the school atmosphere. I have see her in her best of presence every time she goes to school. School will miss you teacher. Hope you will divert your energy towards social work in and around Belle. I was your first student when you arrived in Belle. wishing you the best for your future. with lots of love Joel/Hilda/Hazel Jason
