Though our time together was markedly short, I hope that I was able to teach you some things, offer you some guidance, and at least make a lasting mark in your future development.

I hope that this time, and my support of you, helps to craft your successful career going forward.

The process and the events did eventually place strain, but our continued understanding allows for a positive future for you.

Whether we meet again on this path, or your career journey takes you in different directions, i hope that the lessons learned are lasting.

Sorry and pained to see you go.
