Thank you very much for the update and correction.

I'm surprised to know he is 80 years old.
Please give my regards to him.

Update and correction on your "King of Cards" Leroy Gensemer of Exeter, Mich. has collected over 1.4 million different business cards!

Should read:

Mr. Leroy Gensemer of Exeter, (PA.) has collected over (1.6 million) different business cards as of 5/27/08 Mr.Gensemer's 80th. Birthday!

He lives across the street from me and wanted to update the data for you.

Thanks so much he's a wonderful person.

Rick
