    May your journey's be safe...
    As you make it to your knew place.

    I don't know your road...
    But as it comes to an end....
    I pray its like the streets of gold.
    And know that we will always be home...
    If you ever need a shoulder to cry...laugh...scream...or just to lean on.

    Your words were mighty...
    Your pen was sharp...
    Sometimes they were like knives...
    piercing our heart.
    Leading us in directions we have never seen before...
    And just so it will be known...
    We shall miss you guys forever more.

    Watch and don't forget...
    May your goals be met....
    Never live in regret...
    and if need be...there's a library around some corner...
    Who is willing to help out a loner...to let them check up on the mail...
    We will be sending you a message...in a sail...boat...riding the seas...
    You'll see it pass you by in the misty breeze.
    Keep safe...
    God Bless...
    and always believe...
    Cause we will be right here at home...
    When you have nowhere else to roam....

    We'll miss You guys!!!!! :(

    No thanks!!!

    There is truly no need for that. Thanks to Destee and your columns and many of your scribes and others. I have learned so much...i see how other people view the world. For me...I feed off of others thoughts on life. I take that and run with it. Learning more about people and our world today. Some say I should've became a psychologist...funny huh? being that i'm a programmer.. :D But i enjoyed your writings...your replies and motivational words. Come back and write to me once again....

    Thank you for all that you have given me of your knowledge, thoughts and opinions....

    :p
