birthday book was open in February for your personal greetings to Yoko Ono in
the AIU messageboard, and all greetings were mailed to Yoko on her 71st birthday
on February 18th 2004.
Yoko wants to thank everyone who
sent birthday greetings to her through the AIU website:
Thank you for giving me the encouragement
I needed so much at this time. I was getting a little depressed with the world
situation, and for just having come out of a bad cold. As you may know, I don't
usually get sick...maybe only once in a few years. So this was not normal at all
for me! But you picked my spirit up more than you could imagine. A big hug to
each one of you!
