Aww, thanks!  I am certain you will live up to any expectations and more!  The branch and region structure Sylvia and team has laid out is awesome and the interest and buzz at the branch/individual level is incredible.  I am so excited that this is all coming together.  Thanks for jumping in and taking an active role.

Thanks again for joining us, and I look forward to getting to know you.
