Rob's very last PM in my Inbox, word by word, letter by letter:
I hate to see you go, as you are very definitely a valued contributor here. You and axel_ny -- our other Romanian brother -- are two of my favourite members here. But only you know what is best for you, so I totally respect whatever path you choose.
Sorry I haven't had a chance to get back with you after that last PM. I've been travelling to test meets and trying to catch up on e-mails and PMs in-between. If there was ever any doubt, you and I are completely in sync on the political issues. I have to bite my tongue around here quite a bit because I have to respect that they simply do not want political discussion here, regardless of point of view. The resulting drama hurts the community. But rest assured, having met quite a few members of this forum, your beliefs are right in the mainstream.
I do wish we had a chance to meet up on your last trip. Do keep me posted on future trips to Texas or Florida, as I'd love to meet up and buy you lunch. I'm a retired, disabled veteran of Iraq, and I have nothing but time on my hands.
I wish you all the best. Keep in touch.
I'll let our own Radar Roy speak for everybody in this forum:
May GOD Forever Rest Your Soul in Peace
Merry Christmas to you up there in Heaven
We All Miss you down here
Sleep tight, my friend.
