We were pleased and proud to see your accomplishments mentioned in the enclosed clipping from Today’s Globe – pleased because we have enjoyed such a fine business relationship with you and your colleagues and proud because your skills and interests have enhanced the image of this neighborly community which we mutually call our hometown.
My first reaction was to wish that there were more people like you in Springfield. And my second reaction was to realize that there actually are because of your leadership and guidance. And there will continue to be more because of your influence on the young people who are growing up here.
We thought you’d like an extra clipping for Jason, Jr., to put in this scrapbook. And tell him that the Old Man has a lot of friends who are cheering him on.
