“Thanks again, Betty, for helping us with Coach Jimmy Johnson.  You truly went above and beyond convincing him to re-arrange his schedule – with no penalty – when we had to reschedule our program unexpectedly.  I still am amazed that he flew from New York and back in the same day to help us out.  And, I know that he only did that because he thinks so highly of you!  For that, we were all blessed.  The comments I heard over and over again about his presentation were “amazing”, “spot on”, “incredible”… and to think he presented a personalized message with no notes or teleprompter.  We cannot thank you enough for the amazing experience”
