I really valued the time that we spent together and wanted to let you know that your impact on my career will not be forgotten. I especially appreciate the safe place to speak my mind and your honest feedback and thoughts. Your ability to take my sometimes incoherent and not politically correct thoughts and turn them into golden nuggets was invaluable.”
