It is a kind form that seems to want to assure me they really did consider my query. I was in a maybe pile for a bit, so I appreciate the wording. From what I can tell, they would be a wonderful person to work with.

"Although I read your query with great interest, I am going to respectfully pass on [TITLE]. I appreciate the chance to consider your work, and I wish you the best of luck with your writing and your search for an agent. Please note you're welcome to query another agent at TBA after one of us has passed."

I ended up going with a different agent, but the decision was really hard. Desiree was lovely on the call, had a clear and thoughtful editorial vision, and obviously has a very intuitive sense of their role as an agent and author needs. I shared something personal that might impact how I’d approach revision/submission and they didn’t miss a beat on how they’d navigate that.
