Dear Penny, Jodah & Matthew;

First of all, words cannot fully express the depth of my appreciation to the three of you. You came into my life when I was going through a serious transition.

The way you opened the doors of your hearts to me left me speechless. The counsel and assistance you gave to my sister, my best friend and me, regarding our fledgling organization GAMA of Texas, was truly invaluable.

I wish to take a moment to share with you the indelible impact that you have made, not only on my life, but also that of my sons', and to thank you profusely.

We all wish to graciously thank you for your precious time, tireless efforts and timely financial assistance during an intensely challenging period of our lives. Thank you for your concerned and concentrated efforts in helping us move following my divorce. Thank you, especially Penny, for the numerous hours spent counseling us and for your guidance and all at no charge. Thank you for motivating me during times when I felt very unmotivated and for empowering me to be a healthier person.

Thank you Matthew and Jodah for being such great role models for my sons. We greatly admire your tenacious work ethic coupled with your kind, compassionate nature.

Last, but not least, thank you for making funds available to Devan enabling him to purchase his first vehicle, which otherwise would not have been possible.

The three of you will always hold a special place in our hearts along with many fond memories. Again, thank you so much for being the persons that you are. We have absolutely breathed easier because the three of you have been in our lives. Your generosity will never be forgotten and will definitely be emulated.
