Hi Ray,

Well, we've been back for a couple of weeks now. You must be just finishing a second cruise back to Fort Lauderdale.

I've had an opportunity to 'google' you at length, and have been fascinated with the details of your life. Certainly you can say "I did it my way".

I've been on many cruises, and often find a favourite place to hang out - and the Crooners Bar was the place for me on the Coral Princess. Every now and then one discovers a true talent on a ship, and the first night that I listened to you, as we were passing by, I was mesmerized. Your playing demanded that we stay and listen.

It was great listening to you, as you entertained and charmed the audience. I intend to listen to your music that you have made available through the internet. I would say that your performances were the highlight of my cruise.

I trust that you are well, and still wowing the audiences with your playing.
