Dear Angela:

Thank you, thank you, thank you. You were great. I could not have done it without you. I have received many compliments for this conference. It is always so great to work with someone who is organized, punctual, professional, etc. Maria, I think Angela needs a big pay raise! She is the best.

Please be advised that I will review the bill next week and send your payment. Sorry for this delay, but I returned from Greece to find out my mother fractured her back in two areas. I have been in and out of the office tending to her. She will have surgery tomorrow so I will be out again. Sorry for this delay.

Your understanding is greatly appreciated.

Thank you and best regards.
