Cheers for helping to shape these forums into something that is (and continues to be) immensely useful to me and my family.

Re: Movin' On

Barry, sometimes there are not words to express an appropriate amount of gratitude. That's the dilemma that I'm faced with at the moment, because your leadership, your help, and your amazing dedication to this community has honestly changed my financial & credit life. "Thank You," and "I'll miss you" doesn't seem nearly enough. This awesome community exists because of your imagination, efforts, and dedication. Your steady presence and guidance has been a rock for so many of us. It has truly been an honor.

You brought these forums to life and made them educational and sound - they will not be the same without your presence, guidance, knowledge and graciousness.  Thanks for starting a good thing and then crafting it into a one-of-a-kind forum presence.  Your broad knowledge base will be sorely missed.

 

Congratulations and best wishes on your future endeavors.  And a boatload of gratitude.  Along with many others, my family has been personally impacted by what you've created here.  And as always, you are a class act!

 

I wish you great company, freedom from all things ridiculous, and the joy that comes from a job well done!  All the best!

Just puttin' syrup on something, don't make it pancakes.
