You truly have no idea how much of a positive impact you have made on my family and I will forever thank you. You continued to guide and help my dad, even when you had so much other stuff going on in your life and I am so grateful for that. I just want you to know how much I appreciate you and all of your hard work. You have allowed us to start fresh--while closing a chapter and beginning a new one."
