    Dear Mr. Hackett,

    On behalf of my family, I wish to thank you for looking over the welfare and needs of the world over through CRS programs. Surely, through your efforts you have touched the lives of many in the face of hunger, poverty, disease, peace disorder and lack of reconciliation.

    Working under you during your stint at CRS Philippines, you have shown your exemplary performance in many ways from your small program office in the country to a higher position at Baltimore headquarters, the nucleus center of serving the needs of the people globally.

    I retired in 2008 after serving CRS Philippines for 31 years, and now enjoying my good years with my family and only one granddaughter. Still the memories of your noble works alongside with other senior excellent dedicated staffers lingers on.

    At present, I head the parish Basic Eclessial Communities (BEC,sounds familiar to you, and like CRS it wants to spread the Good News while extending its services to the communities.

    As you begin a new stage of your life expect you will feel a different enjoyment. Good luck and God bless all!

    Dear Ken,
    I have often wondered how you came to work for CRS and now you are retiring.

    I will miss your smiling face & wish you peace and joy in your retirement.

    Wish I could have lunch with you to learn more on what motivated you and how people like myself could get more involved.

    I look forward to learning more about the new president of CRS.

    Thank you for all you have done.
