Dear Dolores,

Your exceptional storytelling, copywriting, and content clarity are to be continuously applauded. Your writing moves readers such as me and pictures your stories in our minds.

You draw us into our thoughts and allows us to review our own similar experiences. As I read and reread your story, I was picturing the letters from my father when I was in Viet Nam.

Thank YOU,
