I would like to include in this note of thanks all the people who took the time to send me congratulations for my birthday, as well as everyone who has helped me one way or another to carry out my projects.
To my parents, my sisters and my new family, the Palmieris, who are always there for me and, of course, my beautiful girlfriend Maria who is always at my side, supporting me in everything I do.
I would like to thank my friends Alfredo and Antonio for keeping the LVG Social going, and above all, everyone who supports us every two weeks with their attendance.
To all my friends in Dallas who always treat me as part of the family – thank you.
I could continue, but then I would never finish, there are many who I have not mentioned, but who I want to know that I also give my thanks to for being my friends.
And last but not least, I give thanks to God.
I hope that you all spend happy times with your friends and family this Christmas.
And I wish you all a very happy and prosperous new year 2011, may all your dreams come true
With my best wishes
