I was very honored and touched by your lovely recognition at the 13th anniversary event. I will cherish the beautiful Hudson River Sunset, and it will remind me not just of the place but of the people who live and work there.

I must say, this is the first time I've ever been sung to...and it was a special delight! It has been a great privilege - and pleasure - to share these years with all of you.
