We hope you are just as excited for these new stamps as we are.  Now it is time to say a fond farewell to the beloved Nancy Wethington.  Over the last year we have had the priveledge of working with Nancy.  Not only is she a creative genius, she is also one of the most helpful, ambitious, and lovely people we have had the opportunity to work with.  Nancy is always going above and beyond, turning in extra projects on a monthly basis, offering up creative and wonderful insight to the whole G45 family, and always volunteering for special assignments.  Nancy, you will truly be missed.  Fortunately, we have formed a great friendship that we look forward to watching grow, and watching Nancy's creative passion on her outstanding journey.
