Thank you for your kindness
Which you have showed to us
When we were new and floundering
You took us not to task
Your patience never dwindling
Your support waiting to be asked
Your persona ever soothing
Your ensemble never masked
We worked with you and liked it
Therefore together we en-masse
Today before you like this
To bid you good luck, Alas!
May prosperity be your companion
When on this journey you embark
And all that you and yours undertake
Be blessed in ways unsurpassed...
