“I would give you an A in each category. I found working with you to be very rewarding. You are a good listener and I found that your follow up questions back to me forced me to think about my situation in different ways and truly work toward the best solution for all…and I realized that I indeed need to make some improvements. I thank you for always being there to help. Thank you.” B.J
