I have known you first, as my instructor, then as my colleague, and finally, as my friend. You have always taken the time to listen and offer advice both when I was a student and now that I am an instructor. You truly seem to care and I believe that to be the most noble quality an educator could possess.

I have enjoyed sharing anecdotes of Cody's many adventures with you these last few years. It's refreshing to have someone else's wisdom and perspective on the sometimes trying times of child rearing.

I wish you all the best in your retirement and hope that you will not forget those of us in MLS that are still left! I admire your dedication and professionalism and I strive to achieve just half of what you've accomplished in your years of service. ENJOY and keep in touch!
