John – It’s taken me too long to get around to this, but now that we’ve all sorted things out, I guess it’s never too late for a heartfelt THANK YOU for all your help during the past ten years, and particularly the last two-plus years since we lost Ralph. You and Chris, and more recently Sheri, took things in stride and offered construction suggestions, not to mention temporary financial support, during a time when we and our “new” partners were getting to know and understand each other and find ways to do, together, what needed to be done. Thanks for your patience and professionalism, but also for calmly moving things forward to a satisfactory conclusion when you knew others were impatient. Although we never expect to need your professional services again, and not ever get back to Juneau, Carol and I want you to know how much your efforts have been appreciated. We’ll continue to think of you as a valued friend.
Thanks again, and best personal regards,
