    Chuck,

    Deer Valley is truly my home. You have been there and watched me grow up, hunted Christmas trees with me, my dad, and my brother, and sent me and your youngest off to the same college together. You have been part of the DV family, and part of my family, since before I was born. Thank you for being such a wonderful asset to DV, my family, and my dad. Looking forward to seeing what you do with this next chapter of life. Live it and enjoy it! You deserve it, my friend!

    With love,
    Emily Wheaton
