A thank you

Hi! I just found my childhood copy of fat men from space and it really means a lot to me. Enough so that I went out and got a flying hamburger piloted by a fat man tattooed! I just wanted to say thank you to Daniel for his massive contribution to my childhood. I remember my father reading me his books every night and doing silly voices. The time I did have with my father was rarely wonderful but he always smiled reading Daniels books. He passed away in 2009 and finding the book again really made me remember the best of our times together. I will someday read fat men from space to my children and be able to tell them a happy story of their grandpa and that means the world to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for putting these incredible pieces of your soul into the world. 

Daniel replies:

I'm trying to resist asking you to show us the tattoo. None of our business, really. You do know that as a tattooed person you now cannot be buried in a Jewish cemetery, do you not? Of course it is statistically unlikely that you are Jewish, but should you be, or at some time convert to Judaism, there would be a problem. Unless they change the rules. Anyway it is nice that my book means so much to you.
