Hello Mr. Bryant, 

I would just like to say, thank you, thank you for giving me insight and rejuvenation to go forward with my passion. For the indication of staying "Present" and not "Settling." These words will always stick with me.

For letting me know, that it is okay to have dreams, and of doing multiple things in life that some people don't even imagine.For letting me know, that it is okay to be nosy or curious.

For being this gratifying man; a man that still opens the doors for a woman, and walks on the outskirts of the streets for woman. 

Thank You for being this wonderful motivator and mentor. Thank You for believing in ME (Ashley Buchanan), and believing that I can be the HOPE for this future. I will not disappoint you, and we will make smart sexy!

Ms. Ashley L. Buchanan

Ps: I called the local post office in Greensboro and spoke to someone about getting my passport.
