Hi David,

I share Melinda’s sentiment on this, and am really sad to see you go.
You’ve been one of the biggest contributors and assets to the group, and
fit in here extremely well. I and the group will most definitely miss your
participation. But like Melinda, I also support you in whatever you decide.

I’m sure I speak for everyone in wishing you continued success in your next
