My hands are shaking... :heart: Johnny wrote... He wrote the word of "Zone".... :heart:
I am so proud of myself being a fan of such a tremendously gentle, humble and kind man.
And I am so happy to be one of Zoners.
If I wasn't, I don't think I could join this kind of meaningful donation project especially overseas.

Johnny's writing is always deeply touches me, but this is the best of the bests.

I am honored and humbled by him.

Thank you very much, Part-time Poet and all the Moderators, for this wonderful site and for your hard work for this project.
Keep breathing.
Keep moving forward.
Be happy.

Wow. I am at an utter loss for words.

Johnny's kindness is what really knows no bounds. That's amazing, I'm so happy for you that you received something so cherished from the man himself. That is just too cool.

I am really proud to be part of such a great community of people who admire Johnny and his work. It is truly remarkable that a community like the Zone can take time to give to causes such as this one, and it's a great feeling that Johnny really appreciates what's out here and what there is to offer.

Again, I am so happy for you! :disco: :cool:

Congruatulations all zoners, and thank you PTP for sharing, it was a great story and a cherry on top of the night.
So how is a raven like a writer's desk?

I am about speechless right now. What an amazing surprise and what a(nother) wonderful gift Johnny has given us by sending this letter acknowledging us all.

Thank you for making the birthday project possible, PTP. I am so proud to be a member here.

...Awww! That is such a sweet thing for him to do. And I think these charity projects are very well thought out and much more meaningful than everyone sending him stuffed animals and other what nots. Good job everyone! This is why I am proud to belong to this special group of friends. (I did not donate this year..but I did last year! - and will this coming year for whatever project we do here!) Thanks for sharing this special letter. Now you better frame it nicely.

I'm speechless too and got teary eyed reading that letter. How incredibly sweet and kind of him to acknowledge the B-day project and the Zone.

I'm very proud to be a part of this community and to have found and been inspired by such a great man. :angel:

No Johnny, THANK YOU! :cloud9:

The incredible diversity of the Zone is what beckoned to me initially - even now, I still find myself reading everything and, as a result, rarely finding the time to post proper comments when they would be most appropriate . . . so usually I don't.

But this personal acknowledgement from Johnny is just so amazing, Natalie, and we all have you to thank for it. For keeping us all on the straight and narrow, for providing this safe, marvelous, respectable haven . . . thank you, many many times over!

I can't write anything. I'm a new one here, and I never imagined that kind of thing. It's amazing to see that Johnny might be far away, but he's connected to us all by heart. It's marvelous. Just unbeliavable. It makes my pride of being his fan to increase and keep increasing.
I've got no words anymore.
Thank you for sharing this with us.
Thank you, Johnny. You are the greatest man in all the world. :twohearts:

That is just amazing -- and three kisses to boot.

All of you who work so hard to keep the Zone functioning deserve countless thanks. I'm very happy that Johnny acknowledged you personally -- what a tribute.

Johnny is a kind and generous soul.

I was trying to come up with something original to say but Wow seems to be it. Johnny never fails to amaze me.

Unbelievable!!! And sooo incredibly cool! He's an extraordinary guy, as we all know, but, oh my gosh ~ to write a personal note like that is just amazing! I can't even begin to imagine what it must've been like to open that letter, PtP! And you're still here among us to tell the tale! :lol:
