    Dear Jessie!

    I was sad to read the news of your departure from Common Hope.
    11 years ?? I met you 11 years ago? WOW!
    Thank you, so much, for taking care of volunteers….of listening…..of showing your passion for Common Hopes goals and mission.
    You will be missed. I cannot make your party on Friday, however, I hope to stop in to see you before you leave.
    Good luck with your new job.
    You will be missed at CH. But, there is a new adventure out there for you.
    Hugs.
