To my dear friends,
Simply, I will miss you. I have been here four years and one month, and in that time you have become not only my friends but my sisters, my colleagues, my collaborators, my mentors, my conscience, my champions, my co-conspirators, my comediennes, my artists, my strength, my wisdom, my vision and my mates.
Thank you. Thank you for who you are and what you so generously give of yourself to me and to others. Thank you for inspiring me to be better, kinder, smarter, more focused, more driven, more caring, just more.
You are exceptional. You are clever. You are funny (Oh, how I have laughed). You are thoughtful and strong and generous. You are brave, brilliant and inspirational. You are forever in my heart.
I love you and will miss you greatly. But this is not goodbye. This is, “until next time.”
