Dear Donna,

On behalf of the patients, families, and staff here at Duke Children's Hospital, I would like to thank you for your wonderful story telling talent and the time you spent with us on October 31st.

I had so many people tell me later how much they enjoyed hearing your stories. You have a gift that is very special. The details and expression you gave to each tale was fantastic! I believe the adultst enjoyed them as much, if not more than the kids. It was a great way to end a wonderful Fall Festival event. We would love to have you back again next year if you are available. Grey Brown can reach me if you are intrerested in any other opportunities to work with the kids in the hospital.

Thank you again for coming for the afternoon. We had a great time and hope you did too.

Sincerely,
Michelle Ashford, CCLS
Child and Adolescent Life Specialist
Duke Children's Hospital
