From Leonard (after he had received our Birthday greeting, plans of the bench, and names of contributors):
You guys are too much!
Will reply to this astonishing kindness when I can find the words.
Love and Blessings,
When I asked some days ago about the tour plans (referring to the comments he gave in LA, London, and NY), he said:
No tours in the foreseeable future.

Lovely words re the bench and birthday greetings etc.
As for tour plans, as I understand it, Leonard is rather short sighted these days so he may not be able to see so far in to the future .....

I am so happy he is happy, so touched he is touched.
Thank you, Jarkko. You made possible what we all together made possible.
So, thanks to everyone!
To Marie, Lakis, Demetris, and everyone directly involved in the project.
And to Leonard, for always being so kind to us.
And to you, Jarkko, again and again and again.
Oh, I'm very grateful tonight.

Thank you Leonard for your warm words and Jarkko for letting us know them!
I’m just proud to belong to this wonderful, caring community and to be able to contribute to this venture
It's great that individually we were able to create something special for everyone collectively.
