Back Home, but already missing my new AMG friends!
« on: August 10, 2009, 07:56:45 PM »
I had a great time this year at AMG 2009 and I am so grateful that I got to come. I arrived home this afternoon after a rather quick (it seemed) car trip back from Boston. I would like to express my deepest appreciation to all those who donated to the Grants Committee and made it possible for me to attend. I'm sooooo glad to have met you all and to have a whole new group of friends in my life. I hope you have fun the rest of the AMG and all travel home safely! Rock on!

Glad you made it home safely, Odyssey. It was nice to meet you and fun to be on your team.

Take care,

It was great to meet you, too! We got home tonight and we're so missing Boston already, and Santi had another good experience at his second AMG.

Hi Odyssey:

Your infectious smile and warm hugs made AMG all the better.  I'm glad you were able to come and we too now have a new friend.

Take care of yourself buddy.

Glad you made it home safely.  It was a treat to spend time with you in Boston.  I'm glad you were able to make it.  A CSI marathon, hun?  How come I wasn't invited?

hi odyssey.

yeah, it was great meeting you too.  I really did enjoy the time we had together.  After meeting people like you and everyone else, you get an idea of just how special these gatherings can be and how important it is that such a diverse group of people can enjoy each other's company.
