LETTERS OF THANKS:

3/5/2016

Dear Dr. Di Perna,

It was a distinct pleasure to meet you and we are grateful that Russell brought you to our group!

Your discussion at our Hot Topics meeting on Thursday was without doubt one of the best and most widely discussed topics we've had in our 7 year history. You totally enlightened our group about the clear and present danger of radical Islam, to the point that people are discussing your talk with their friends who weren't there and among themselves.

Your presentation was cogent, direct, clear and well delivered. Your subject knowledge is quite apparent and is deeply appreciated by me and our entire group.

If you would like to come back and have another discussion, we would be delighted.

Thank you so much for your outstanding work!!!

Best regards,

Larry
