Thank you for your leadership these past years.  You have set a high standard
for what it means to be a leader in the Neutron community.  You have been a
great technologist, keeping a keen eye on the strategic needs of the project and
the community while also posessed of great insight when battling bugs.  But you
have also been a kind word, an outstretched hand, or a welcoming presence for
those of us who have had the pleasure to work with you.  I feel that with your
leadership and your example Neutron has been a better environment in which to
labor.  So thank you for everything you have done and been for your fellow
Neutrinos these four cycles.
