It was so wonderful that you and your family were able to attend my graduation ceremony and celebration. As we ended up having so many guests at the graduation party, unfortunately I wasn’t able to spend as much time visiting with you as I would have liked. But please know your presence and happy smile were very much appreciated. And thank you so much for the generous graduation gift. I will spend the money wisely. I plan to use the funds to purchase several much-needed items for my new apartment.
Thank you again!
