  1. All I can say is thank God that DSB survived this serious medical emergency. I believe this is one of a number of medical emergencies that she has had over the years. That is why she can sing “I’m Still Here” with true authenticity and gratitude. This has made her a much more sensitive human being, which cones through in her sparkling , wise smile and happy content demeanor. Thanks a lot Pieter. You and your team are the best.
