*************************************************************************************************************************************************************************I was a reluctant student of Dear Virginia Gollatz, in the 59’s.  I am celebrating my 83rd Birthday in May.  Yes, my mom bribed me by promising a trip to the Magic Store in Pasadena after every class and while I did not become a magician, the training I received from dear Miss Gollatz has been magic in my life.   Thank you for continuing her legacy and good luck in continuing your very important work. Blessings to you all, Chuck Kinsey.
