Congratulations on your retirement! Whenever I talk about my graduate program, you are the first person that I mention. The connection I felt with you and the ways in which you helped me academically, socially and mentally, will stick with me for the rest of my life. You gently nudged me into adulthood and I am forever grateful for your wisdom, your kindness and your candor. You are a wonderful person, and I am so excited for you and your adventures to come! Much love, Hannah Etchison
