"Alan, Thanks so much for the amazing talk you gave at the Center last Sunday.
Folks were riveted - and I have heard many wonderful compliments

So if you give another address in Salt Lake like

You have many fans at the Center - both new and old.
I so appreciate your doing this and also for the wonderful
education it provided for our congregation.
You are a light in our community. Thank you Alan, Elizabeth Rev. Elizabeth O'Day"
