    Dearest Ag:

    It is so marvelous and appropriate that you should be honored by the BCC community and especially to be the recipient of the award which pays perpetual tribute to you and our beloved Erv.

    I wish that Lori and I could be there to be among those praising you and showering you with hugs and kisses. But, we moved to New Orleans in 2011; thus, it’s impossible for us to be in attendance.

    So, just know that you have our affectionate congratulations and very best wishes always, plus our grateful acknowledgement that you have our love and thanks that you are a blessed person who blesses everyone whom you encounter.

    Warm thoughts and heartfelt prayers always, Allen
