    Dear Anne,
    You are one of the most important people in the history of my life. I could never repay you for all the things that you’ve done for me and my family Although there is much joy in job coaching, I find it hard to believe that I will enjoy it as much as when I was reporting to you. On January 12th we both told each other to enjoy the long weekend. If I knew I’d never see you again I would have stayed longer and bothered you more about the things that I think are a big deal. Thank you for hanging out with me so much and entertaining my concerns and ideas, even when Cathy and Joan were trying to make you go home. Thank you for taking my calls early in the morning , after hours and on the weekend too. I will never forget you.
