He sounds like he is doing well. I wrote him a letter using http://www.dearelder.com/ (my first time using the site) and it worked like a charm. It was so easy (and free) and I didn't have to set up an account or anything, though I think you can if you want to. So give it a try--I know Elder K would love to hear from you too!!!
