[Dear Miss Snell -]

[I send my warm wishes across the miles for a happy and joyful retirement. You have touched the lives of so many people in a meaningful way that you could spend all your time visiting your many friends. Let it be known that in Minneapolis the door is open wide for a great coach - a fine teacher and an exemplary person.]

[Sincerely -]
