    Hi Mary,
    So glad I found you again! Hope all is well with you and your family. You popped into my head today (you do frequently when I plan my math instruction!). I seem to remember some sort of fractional money manipulative that you shared with us, but can’t seem to find one that is accurate. Do you remember the name of the one you like?

    Hi Mary,

    I’ve been trying to keep in touch with you relating to the franchise possibilities. Please let me know if you are still considering this and a time that would be ok for me to follow up again. Also, the number I have for you is no longer working, so an updated phone number would be great if you still are thinking about franchising.

    Best Regards,

    Suzy Coletti
