“Dear Paula, Both my wife, Marty, and I very much enjoyed meeting you and continue to share between us our personal delight that you captured my likeness so keenly. We believe the University chose very wisely in selecting you for this work–which means so much to me and my family, as well as my extended family of the University of Texas Pan-American and all South Texans. Needless to say, I will highly recommend your artistry to those who may be interested in commissioning such a fine craftsman as you. With my highest personal regards, I remain, Sincerely,”
