    Thank you for all the good you've done the city and not only singlehandedly renovating all the beautiful buildings downtown, but giving the architecture of them the respect they deserve. I used to work for your company and it was hands down the best I've ever worked for and it gave me the financial freedom to pursue what I've always wanted to do. Get well soon

    Dear Mr. Gilbert...

    In 1963 as New York's glorious Penn Station was being pounded to rubble... the New York Times had this to say... "We will probably be remembered more for what we have destroyed than what we have saved". That may be true for that other billionaire, but not in your case....

    Get well soon and keep up your good work....

    Mr. Gilbert, Get some much needed rest and hope for a speedy recovery. I remember going to the Book Tower back when bookies and only a few other tenants were there thinking it would take a billionaire to invest and restore these buildings, you and your team made the vision come to light. Thanks for all you've done for Detroit!
