“Dear Jerry, I very much appreciate the time you spent with us, and the additional time you spent looking over my information. It is very helpful...and exciting for me! I am looking forward to my visit to Norway, even more so now that I have your information to add to mine. Through the Sletksforum Karmoy, I have made a connection with a relative. Her grandmother and my grandfather were siblings. I am hoping to connect with her, if we can work it out. Again, my thanks for the wonderful information you provided.”
