Happy Birthday, Jack! Thanks to you we no longer have to ask, "Where are the customers' yachts?" A good number of them are owned by Vanguard investors. How sweet it is.

Jack -
I recently received my lovely new "gold embossed" edition of your Wiley Investment Classic, "John Bogle on Investing."

In your dedication, you dedicate the book "to all of the human beings who have meant so much to me during the first 50 years of my career," to your "loyal and steadfast members of the Vanguard crew," to "those millions of intelligent investors who own the Vanguard Funds," and "especially those 'Bogleheads' of the Internet, that dedicated and loyal cadre of Vanguard Diehards who give me the strength to carry on my mission."

That is a wonderful dedication - but our dedication goes to you.
You have meant so much to us, to me and my family, and to the "millions of intelligent investors" who have read your wise advice and - due to the success of your mission - are able to be financially healthy.

Happy Birthday,
Miriam2 and family

HI, MY BELOVED AND FELLOW BOGLEHEADS!

Thanks to all of you, so much, for remembering my 86th birthday. Truth told--given my health history--it's a remarkable accomplishment. While it's a great achievement to reach 86, it's not so much fun to be 86! But combined, all of you together give me strength to carry on. It's a wonderful life!

Love, always,

Jack

Thank you Mr. Bogle and may you have many more.
Thank you for building an institution where I know I can trust in. I can sleep easy knowing my interests are aligned with my investment company's, and I don't have to worry about being taken advantage of.

There is only one place I can send my mother to invest and know no one will take advantage of her. And that is the house that Bogle built.
