It was a pleasure working with you in making this mediation happen.  We all realize it was a very difficult set of circumstances with the pandemic and the number of participants, as well as the necessity to resort to a virtual mediation environment.  Your efforts are greatly appreciated, and we thank you for your time and assistance.  I look forward to working with you in the future on other potential mediation matters.
