Dear Senator, I know I speak for everyone at American Bakers Association in extending our warmest appreciation and congratulations for the outstanding speech you made at our dinner gathering last week at Isleworth Country Club.

Senator, it was truly an honor and privilege to have you and Shirley with us for the evening. We want to thank you for your public service to the State of Georgia as well as to the United States.
