Dear Steve,

I just wanted to take a chance to let you know that Mona has been a tremendous help in planning a trip to Cancun.
She has gone out of her way to make sure things have gone smoothly, has made many changes to our itinerary that we have requested and has be such a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process.

It has been my pleasure and I look forward to working with Mona and others for future trips!

Amrish P.
