Thank you Don for all you have done for our Division. You always brought the fun, wherever you went. You always had an easy way of keeping "stuff" in perspective. Realizing the point of why we do this.

I still remember the time I was an S2 and you flew into one of our FNO's.  I kept thinking don't forget this or don't forget that, big "boss" is arriving. LoL. Basically don't F it up!!

You called up and made me laugh out loud on frequency......and kept making me laugh all the way to hand off to ground. That was the same spirit you brought to this hobby every day. So thank you for everything. You have EARNED your time sir. I wish you much luck in your future endeavors.

Don,

Congratulations on your successes with the Division, and thank you for your service to the VATSIM Network. You lead from the front, the trenches, and it is something many have had an opportunity to gain valuable experience from. I wish you the best of luck in your retirement, albeit possibly short-lived (we ALWAY'S come back ;) ) I am sure we will cross path's once again in the future.

Happy Holidays to you and your family.

Congratulations on your retirement, Don.  You have done us at the division and the entire Network proud and you deserve nothing but success and good luck in your retirement.  I hope that means you'll be retiring from your RW job...and coming back to us in a few years?  ;) Or is this one of your "April Fools" posts?   Either way - good luck ol' man!
