I'm writing you due to my recollection of a conversation I had with you, back when you lived in Mentone about Scuba Diving. I remember you telling me that you wanted to take a course in Scuba that the school was offering, but you could not afford it. You also told me that your father Bernd would not pay for it. I offered to pay but you told me that your father would get mad.
Well, now your little brother Alex is the appropriate age for beginning Scuba lessons (12 years old) which is what he has been telling me he wants to do. I'm sure he'll make a great and safe Scuba diver, no doubt.
This apparently has made me think of you. I heard that you moved to Hawaii (Waikiki) Lucky you! Congrats. Scuba diving in Hawaii with Alex and you would be an unforgettable experience for Alex, you and I, I am sure. You're a fine young fella and as far as I'm concerned, we have always gotten along just great.
Your mom and I love to travel and before you moved over to Oahu I have been speaking with your mother about taking a trip there. We'd love to see ya. Tell me if we can have a good time like we did in Denver? We had a great time swimming, eating and talking together. Thank you so much for showing us around Colorado. It was quite beautiful and you were very hospitable. Perhaps you can extend a welcome soon, possibly this summer.
