“Dear Mr. Greenberg, There are definitely no words to explain my gratitude towards you – you have been a rock to me in my most trying time of life. I want to thank you for your special effort and also your compassion towards us.

I will always remember your kindness and I know that I can always depend on you in years to come.”
