{…} I loved our meeting! …

You mentioned that certain problems have been bothering you for some time now. I wish they go away. Hope things go back to where they should be, {…}

Thank you {…} for everything. You changed my life….hope to see you soon in future. Also, looking forward to your session on “optimization for innovation”….😄
