Although I do not post to this list often, I do read it daily and find
it immensely useful and interesting. I have always found value in your
posts and will miss your contribution to this community.

Thank you for your involvement over the years and best of luck for the
future. I'd like to keep up-to-date with your endeavors and will send
you a LinkedIn invitation.

Warm regards,
Frank Finnegan.
