I think the main dish on the plate here should be thanks for a job done so
well for so long.

However anything else gets sliced, Bob is one of the "Iron Men"  --
 someone who did a good thing for a lot of people for a long, long time.

Thank you Bob, and good luck on whatever those "other interests" may be.

73, Guy.
