"When we needed help, you answered back promptly. When we had questions, you returned back with appropriate answers. When we had difficulties, you helped guiding us thru processes in no time. We appreciate the effort you put in trying to help us immensely; you do care about our problems."

"What I love about you is that you're upfront and straightforward, but know how to play the game. You know how to strategize and get the job done. You have a good poker face. You have a good heart."

"You're the last person I've got. I know you're paid, but I couldn't pay you enough to deal with what you've put up with. You do it from the heart. I love you as much as I love my family. You're it. The ball's in your court. Run with it."
