An email from SE:

My estimated net worth is in excess of $40 million….  And… I don’t think this would have happened if it wasn’t for you and the faith and confidence you showed me early in my career. Mark, I’m sincerely grateful. I recognize a tremendous debt. No one in my life has done more for me than you. No one else even comes close.

 I hope you know that when I’m celebrating a big dividend check… or when I take my wife to Paris for the weekend… or when I’m playing baseball with my sons in our beautiful backyard… I’m saying thanks to you. I know exactly how much you’ve done for me. I know how you did it at a critical time in my life… when almost no one else would have given me a chance.

 Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
