Thank you for all of your time, attention, and hard work these few months. This past year has been the most difficult I've experienced, the latter part perhaps even more so. Throughout this process, though, you've been an encouraging and calming influence, which has simplified and eased what once felt overwhelming. Your expertise carried us to yesterday's success, and I can't thank you enough." E.C
