For me retiring is a two edged thing. While it’s exciting to not have the constrains of a regular job, I have spent a lifetime making friendships. Today I find myself somewhat somber and missing those friends. Leaving last week was one of the hardest things I’ve had to do. Part of the reason I haven’t written anything since returning to Partsmaster last week was that I have had so many emotions and really haven’t been able to sort them out. Excitement, regret, happy, sad, concern, apprehensive and of course worried. However, now I’m feeling better. Things are beginning to sort themselves out. Now I can see things are going to be fine. My friends will carry on as they always have, Partsmaster will continue and we will look to new adventures. Many of my friends are close and I will see a again. Some were casual which I may never see again and that makes me sad. I know I didn’t get to say goodbye to everyone. I want to say ‘Adios amigos’ and ‘Via con dios’, ‘Happy trails till we meet again’.
I hope and wish each of you all my best and may God bless each of you.
