Hi, Gloria: Many thanks for such a tremendously successful event. If there's a woman in the White House in 2017, it better be you, babe. No wonder that old hound Bill is smiling in all the photos. Please keep in touch and come out here for a visit. Cheers, Vic

Hi, Sue: It was great to see you at the reunion. Many thanks for your energy and skills that made all the events such a whopping success. Just because there's snow on the roof doesn't mean there's no fire in the furnace, eh?
