“Dear friend-classmate of ours!
In our childhood could we assume that our huge great country is split up and many people have to live abroad. It concerned you too: you live in Canada. Perhaps, God blessed you! it is for the better. Who knows?!
Only God Almighty is familiar with whom and what is destined to experience in life. You had your share to meet a great number of difficulties but you carry your fate with dignity. As a reward, God granted you Janko, with whom you are accomplishing all your dreams.
On the Seventeenth of March, your Birthday, we wish to our foreign classmate all the happiness, good health, be happy with Janko for many-many days to come.
And one more thing, Valyusha, there lives a hope in us-to meet you, thank God! not a single time but many times in life.
All the best to you,

Yes, at that post-war time the classes were overcrowded.
We studied at Bryansk all girls’ school #1 from 1947 to 1954, later the school was reformed, mixed up with the boys.
