"Hey Group - just want to let you all know what pleasure it has been meeting and conversing with you all.  Being able to understand the struggles of others, along with my own, and seeing the progression of everyone in their journey to sobriety has been an experience that I will always remember.  You have all helped and contributed to my experience at First Step more than you may know.  Addiciton can be defeated.  Family is everything.  Always be nice to people...karma and stuff.  Most importantly, love yourself for who God made you to be.  LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE!"

"To the group - sorry I didn't get to say goodbye.  I appreciate all the Thursdays I have spent with you guys.  Hope all is well.  Stay strong - I'll miss you guys"

"Dear Thursday group friends - My time with you all I will always remember.  I thank you for your kind words about the help my shares gave to you, but please know your shares helped me just as much.  I wish you all the best in your journeys and I know you all have the strength and desire in you.  Always remember "Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow"

"Hey guys - listen, I got discharged and I wanted to let you all know you're all great strong people and just wanted to wish each and every one of you the best.  We all screwed up at one point but all of us gonna prove this corrupt world wrong.  I'm no lie gonna miss y'all so do me a favor and stay safe and stay lit.  All y'all got potential beyond most people I've ever met.  Get out in this world and make things right, let others learn from your mistakes while you better yourselves.  Stay strong through this!"
