Jim Long (RIP-Sept 09) - You will be missed!: "I just wanted to take a moment and thank you again for your kindness, consideration and the classy way you worked with me on this morning's shoot. You will always have my respect for your outstanding artistic smarts and your feel for what might make an interesting picture. It's obvious that you were taught very well, but a lot of what you bring to a shoot is simply that with which you are blessed-the very best word to describe the gifts you clearly have.
Earth is chock full of women who are beautiful on the outside, but many of them lack an inner beauty. Many also don't know how to turn their beauty into something artful with a healthy dose of intelligence behind the art. You are a beautiful woman both inside and out who can. I am very grateful to have worked with you today and would be thrilled to have that honor someday again if that should ever come to pass. Thank you for allowing me to step up to a challenge that I wanted to take on, for with your help I believe I will be better in the craft. If you ever need anything, please don't hesitate to get in touch with me"
