Thank you for everything.
Thank you for seeing the potential in me.
Thank you for teaching me so much.
Thank you for being patient.
Thank you for understanding.
Thank you for letting me be me.
As you ride off into the sunset, please remember this: you have made a difference, and we are all the better for having met you, worked with you, spent time with you.
Although I am sad, I am more glad that you won’t have to worry about any more knives in the back and daggers in the cloak, bare-faced lies and school-yard bullies.
And I promise we will stay in touch – I dare them to tell me I can’t be friends with you now.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you. For everything.
