John,
It was wonderful to see you and your mom at the pageant - long time no see! Please tell your mom it was great to see her - she looks the same. I was honored to be named Miss Congeniality too! It was disappointing that I did not place higher, but the experience was still eye-opening.

 
I think that Tara will be a good Miss USA - she surprised me during the pageant - she has a lot more to her than most people think!

"Hey John! It was great to see you at the Miss USA pageant - you have always been a faithful supporter and I thank you for that! Plus it's always nice to see you and your mom each year! Competing at the Miss USA pageant was a lifetime goal and I am forever grateful for that experience. I learned so much about myself throughout the entire three week process - and the months before while I was training. Although I did not walk away with the title, I returned home with countless stories and amazing friends from across the US."

Hi! This is Dottie Cannon - I met you and your mom at the 2004 Miss USA pageant in Los Angeles, CA. I was there with my friend, Jessica Billings, all the way from Minnesota. We sat by you during the Preliminary competition - how much fun was that?!?!

I wanted to let you know that I still love receiving your updates. Also, I decided to compete in the Miss USA pageant this year (again!) and I won! I am so excited about this opportunity and cannot wait for Nationals - hopefully I will see you there! You are probably at the Miss America competition now, so enjoy and have fun!

Have a great day and I hope you are enjoying the new year!

I will continue to keep you and your lovely mother in my prayers.  You know, I have been so blessed to meet such wonderful people as a result from being Miss USA; as you are one of my favorites!  You always put a smile on my face and have such a warm gift of touching the lives of everyone you meet. 
 
I am working on going to Miss Teen USA and I hope I can see you there!  Please say hello to your mom for me!!
 
Love,
Chelsea
