    Belated Birthday wishes! I just wanted to say thank you for all your years of service. I have eaten average meals and amazing meals all created from the same basic ingredients and what I realized is that the difference comes from people who have a passion for what they do and care for the people that they serve.

    With 47 years in the food services industry, I have no doubt that you knew what quality food was and lead your teams in the production of some very fine meals. I served 1 year in the north (Whitehorse and CFS Alert) and we were pampered daily by our cooks who always made mealtime something to be relished. So, from one who enjoys good food to one who has no doubt produced many fine meals, thank you and Happy Birthday. I have no doubt that you made a joyful difference in many lives.
