" was very special how you just went into the gap and helped N. I'm most appreciative, and I know he is too.

I was so relieved to know that someone was backing N up in the initial stages of this situation, and you were such a great help. I know you spent a lot of time calling/speaking to relevant people, and it is truly appreciated."

"thanks James - you are a magician!"
