"Dear Ward,
Once again I want to express to both you and Cynthia how thankful I am for all the things I learned from both of you during our three-day training. Even though the pacing was fast, we were introduced to a lot of extremely valuable resources and the learning was superb!!! Now that I have had the time to explore everything more in depth, I cannot say "thank you" enough to the two of you. All the best!!!!"
