I think as you are reading all these wonderful tributes and happy birthday wishes to you that you will know forever how much you are thought of and so very much appreciated. I, and everyone here, will never take what you have done for us for granted.

Have just the best birthday today - 60 years is a milestone indeed, but there is so much more to come.

As Leonard says "May your life be as sweet as apples dipped in honey" and I echo those words to you.

Greetings, Jarkko.
I hope you have an excellent day and a future filled with happiness.
Thanks to you I have front row tickets for a major concert for the first time in my life.
I can't thank you enough for your many efforts on behalf of all LC fans and I love your quirky sense of humour.
May the most you wish for be the least that you get.
Too much Leonard Cohen is never enough.

Mitä lämpimimmät syntymäpäiväonnittelut, Jarkko!

Kiitos kärsivällisyydestä jolla olet paimentanut innokasta ihailijakatrastamme ja työteliäisyydestä jolla olet kaatanut runoutta ja musiikkia kohotettuihin laseihimme.

A cross on every hill
A star, a minaret
So many graves to fill
O love, aren’t you tired yet?

- The Faith, Leonard Cohen

Hyvää syntymäpäivää!

Kiitos kaikesta ja voimia ja intoa ja iloa sinulle jatkossa!

Till next time,

Maria ja Pasi P

May there always be work for your hands to do
May your purse always carry a shilling or two
May the sun always play on your windowpane
May a rainbow chase after each spot of rain
May the hand of a friend always be near you
May God fill your heart with gladness and cheer you
