"Dear Kathy, I cannot thank you enough for the kindness and support that you showed to Jack and me on the cruise. Getting to Florida the day before was an excellent idea. It enabled me to make getting to the boat on time a possibility! Thank you too for being sure that the room we had served our needs. Because I have some mobility issues, the shower without a tub was perfect. The ‘window’ allowed more light in our room so that Jack did not experience much ‘sun -downing’. During the conference, when he went to the men’s room and I foolishly did not follow him, you and your staff immediately joined me on a search. You repeatedly showed your compassion and understanding... you were there with a shoulder to lean on and support for all my needs." —Susan B. (East Windsor, NY)

"Hi Kathy, how are you? I'm so sorry that it took this long to let you know how much I enjoyed the cruise and conference. Donald n I was talking about cruise with friends today, we both really enjoyed that time, meeting other people. Thank you for all that you did to make it comfortable, enjoyable your kindness will never be forgotten. Wishing you and your family a wonderful holiday season." —Donald & Cecilia B. (Canada)

"Dear Kathy, this was the trip of a lifetime. After traveling with my husband for 30 years, I thought that I woud never get to go see the world again. But, you made a way that I can, Thank you so very much. It was perfect." —Phyllis D. (Indianapolis, IN)
