It gives me so much pleasure to send you happy birthday greetings. You have been incredible in helping us plan the Columbia University Summer Institute and I am really looking forward to working with you and your colleagues. Sabanci University seems like an extraordinary university and it is fortunate to have you as a professor.
I hope May 1st is a very special day for you as I am sure it will be.
We’ve been, as we call it “work-spouses” for each other these past years in setting up the Writing Center with so many talented people. I know you have more work-spouses out there, but you’ve always been number one with me.
Many happy years to come, I wish for you.
Every good wish!

My dear mentor and good friend,
Here’s wishing you a very happy birthday. May the rest of your years on this planet be filled with laughter, joy, health and happiness! (Baris says hi too:) We really wish we could’ve been there on your bday!
Sending you hugs from Chicago
Dearest Sibel, thanks for the photo! The little girl in the stroller is SO CUTE!! And now, you look a lot like your beautiful mother.
My dearest Sibel, on your birthday, if I could explode fireworks over Istanbul, and send an orchestra to your door, I would. Please know that I will be celebrating with you, long-distance. Your birthday is a sign of divine purpose and design for your life, and I pray that many of your dreams will come true. Much happiness, good health, and joy!!
Sounds like a blast! Have a great time!!
Our birthdays are exactly a month apart (April 1, May 1), so we are almost “birthday sisters.” May everything go just as you wish, and the entire experience be even more wonderful than you imagine.
Love and hugs,
To my loveliest,can I bring Hugh Jackman to your party?
He wants to be your escort that night,called me,well I couldn’t say “no” .. He’s a star,and loves to be treated that way..I tried to explain him that YOU are the star of Istanbul,nobody cares about Hugh,but EVERYBODY wants to be seen at Sibel’s party that night..Anyway,at the end he wants to dance only with you on your birthday..
Imagine rhe other girls :)) ohhh,jealousy !!!!!!!!!
This much imagination is enough I guess,but what can you expect else from your “maniac” friend???????
I LOVE YOU HONEY…
HAPPY BDAY MY LOVE..

Iyi ki dogdunuz! Az once iyi dileklerimi websitenize biraktim. Dedim ki pastanizi bol nefesle ufleyin, gezegen dunyanin oteki ucundan, Pasifik kiyilarindan size bolca temiz hava, bolca gunes, ve bolca ses yolluyorum.
Yeni yasinizda hersey gonlunuzce olsun!
Ekte kucuk bir armagan paylasmak istedim, yazin vermeyi umdugum dersime ait…
I hope your May-Day celebration was wonderful. I have such treasured memories of you during your years of doctoral study at Teachers College and your subsequent visits with us. I look forward to a special although belated Happy Birthday hug in June when we’ll reunite in Istanbul!
