Now that we've reached the end of this stage of the journey and [my daughter] is set at Barnard for the Fall, I just wanted to thank you again for all your assistance and guidance. We simply could not have done it without you. While the end result is always easier to see in hindsight (and, on some levels, may almost seem pre-determined in retrospect), the truth is that when [my wife] and [my daughter] first came to see you in November, we were adrift and had no sense where this might all lead. Your steady hand, influence and availability were incredibly valuable and saw us through a process that appeared even more daunting the second time around. So, our thanks to you.
