Dear Doug Hodel,

Thank you for investing in me.

Thank you for finding my treasures, for wandering my streets and back roads, exploring everything I have to offer, so beautifully, and inspiring others to do the same.

I’m so grateful to have spent so much time in front of your lens and for the work you did to share my stories.

You made me, and countless others, better.

You are loved, friend.

All my love,
Abilene
