    Since our introduction to you through our daughter Heather Davies in the UK in Napoleon, we have long admired your facility & passion in the music & theatre arts, and followed your career with great admiration. We are delighted with your position at Glimmerglass and know that you will continue to bring your passion & your soul to those who see your productions and especially those with whom you work and come in contact. Your speech was so moving and once again reafirms your positive love for your work, your talent in storytelling and our Heather’s continued respect & praise.

    With our very best regards
