“Lubos pong umaasa ang inyong abang lingkod na magpapatuloy ang malapit na ugnayan ng Pamahalaang Panlalawigan ng Bulacan at ng Philippine Medical Association Medical Mission of Greater St. Louis, Missouri, USA sa mahaba pang panahon upang lalo pang maragdagan ang mga Bulakenyong ating mapaglilingkuran. Taimtim rin po tayong umaasa na ang maikling panahon ng inyong pananatili sa Lalawigan ng Bulacan ay napuno ng kasiyahan, kaluguran at hindi malilimutang alaala na inyong babaunin sa inyong muling pagbabalik,” Alvarado said.
