Hi Rachel. Congratulations! I am very excited to meet you in Detroit. It is 
definitely going to be a life changing experience! Which day are you 
arriving? I am arriving Thursday night. I have a feeling we are all going to 
be quite busy, but it will be worth it. Will you be coming alone, or will 
you be bringing someone with? I am bringing my husband. Well, I'm glad you 
wrote, and once again I look forward to meeting you. Do you have facebook or 
anything? Talk soon.
Rachel Jacobs
