As we bid you farewell dear friend, we hope that you know how much you will be missed by your friends in the Antiques and Collectibles World. You became "our" friend the day we met, several years ago. You made us feel welcome and it was as if we had know each other forever. We argued, we bickered, we bid against each other, but we remained good friends and that is all that was ever really important. You have many other friends who will miss you as much as we do. We know that you have found peace and your spirt will flow eternally as does this waterfall.
