You have been a calm in the storm,
you have been someone everyone could rely on
to have the answer to a question,
the solution to a problem, the wisdom, the authority,
the strength to keep everyone going throughout the years.
I will miss having you around,
I will miss hearing your voice,
I will miss you being there to encourage, to guide me,
to keep us all on-track, and to inform.
Everyone will miss you.
It wont be the same not hearing your voice or seeing you again,
but I hope that you wont forget us,
I hope that I do meet you again,
and I hope you have a happy, restful,
and a wonderful retirement, Ken.
