Knuti: I've been taking singing lessons the last few weeks in order to be able to serenade you on your special day.
Gianna: Dear Doro, I'm so sorry the flower shop was closed but I have a nice green lettuce for you.
Your friends in the Knuipe wish you a great birthday with lots of joy and happiness!
Your humble servants, Knuti and Gianna
I wanted to wish you a happy birthday but I know you're not happy today. I understand how you feel because I've recently lost a very dear friend, too.
I wish I could be there to comfort you and give you a big, warm hug. When I miss Daddy very much and feel sad I try to think of all the happy moments we had together. It won't take the pain away but it helps a little.
Hugs and kisses from your friend The Waiter
