I am speechless... I am crying tears of joy. I was not expecting the beautiful video you guys have put together for my 40th birthday.

Really, thank you! Thank you...

Dear Manny...No one deserves it more. At 85 I am a computer nerd and did not know how to do it but my thanks for all you have done for me and Tudiabetes knows no bounds. Enjoy your day and many,many more. Reed

Hi Manny, echoing the very pretty birthday greeting above: Happy 40th Birthday! Have some fun today, maybe a bit of cake and ice cream! And another thanks for TuDiabetes.

Well, 7th time you (not exactly you, but your birthday) made me cry. Do I have to join a food wear house to buy tissues in bulk?

Hi Manny! My 40th birthday was my absolute favorite. I hope you enjoy your 40th as much as I did!!!

You are very welcome! ENJOY!

Happy, happy birthday! No spending your special day on the computer. Get out there & celebrate.

Wanted to send video greetings, but am low tech without an iPhone or computer camera. Emily, always resourceful, tried to come up with a way for me.

Where would thousands of us be without you? Am raising a glass in honor of your birth & for everything you do.
