Many thanks for the summary, which I have to say I agree with in full (and will state that when I share the document).
If you have no objections, I would like to share it all with both Carl & Phil (as well as Jim's new boss).
I would again like to express my personal sadness at the ending of our association.
Whilst I think you've summarised yourself very well in your note (your words ! ! ) ...... you've not sold yourself well enough on your knowledge, experience, capability and abilities. Not just because it's now, but I have always said you are without equal the best process control engineer I have ever had the good fortune to work with and for me it's been an absolute pleasure to have been able to experience working with you.
I hope that the future is good to you, and I also hope that our paths cross again ... hopefully sooner rather than later.
