Dear Barb,

Just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated your help with the product release. We would have missed our due date without everything you did to make the instructional language consistent in the manual, the brochure, and on the Web site.

Our customers will be thankful for the fact that the instructions are straightforward and easy to understand. Even the graphics add to the message and help with the clarity.

I know you had to have let other work slide on our behalf so you must be feeling swamped right now. The team thanks you and, I'm sure technical support will thank you, when they receive fewer calls about this release.

Thanks again,
