As I write this, I am still savoring the good food (especially the carrot cake) that was served at my retirement party on Sunday; and I’m hoping that “root beer toasts” will become a regular occurrence at Transfiguration events. The root beer toast was a special touch in a morning of special touches.
Thank you to everyone who was able to be with me on Sunday, and especially for your kind words as you greeted me. And a huge thank you to all the staff who made everything happen with such ease. This parish is blessed with very competent, caring staff members and Amy Burgin, the new secretary, will fit easily into that model.
I will miss the daily contact with parishioners in my office area, but since I’ve already committed to three things at the church I think we’ll have lots of opportunity to see each other. Until then, I can only say thank you again for 9 great years and a terrific “send off”.
