is my last day working at Menaul for now. I will be leaving at lunch time
and I am sad about leaving and ending my life here. I loved my time here
and had a great experience. I have enjoyed working with everyone here. You have
made my experience very enjoyable. I did not know what it would be like
to volunteer here, but it was better than I imagined. I loved the community
atmosphere in the school and at Teachers Hall with the other volunteers.
And I did not realize that Albuquerque and New Mexico have so much
culture and beauty and history. I loved all of it. I will be back.
I just don’t know when. I just retired at the end of December and I came
right out here. So now I will be going home to find out what it means to
be retired. I have lots of ideas about things to do and I will enjoy
spending time with my family. I want to thank each one of you for everything
you did to make my stay so enjoyable. I will miss all your smiles and all
the friendly faces. And thank you for the lovely going away party.
You are all very special.
