(Mike) I really haven’t been here since returning from Colorado. Just wanted to say thanks for allowing me to participate at FISC. The conference was worthwhile for us and we will probably want to continue to attend in the future. Appreciate all of your help and that of your team on-site, they did a great job! See you Friday.
