I can’t believe you’re 60! You don’t act like it and you certainly don’t look like it! You’re unbelievable; your focus, your diet discipline, your ability to change, adapt, innovate --and that physique! Do you remember the day I walked into your office and joined your school? That was 1980 Sir, twenty-seven years ago (you were 33…and I thought you were old then)! My God how you’ve influenced me! My God how PATIENT you’ve been! Thank you! Thank you! What would my life be like had I never met you? (Prison, I think!) I love you so much! Happy Birthday! Your dedicated student,

Tom Callos
