My best to you, OAG. Hope everything is OK. I will miss your posts. You are the one who educated us on repaying and restarting SS. Thank you for that.

You were always a nice fellow. I wish you all the best!

Good luck OAG,
Your posts were very much appreciated and I'll miss them, I still have one of your long posts on Social Security printed out and in my Social Security file for reference when the time comes.

OAG
Do you suppose he saved his final words for this forum ? as its kinda strange for some one who participated in the forum so much to just say goodby leaving it to our imaginations as to why he left.
Godspeed OAG

I've always liked the expression, "maturity is the ability to live with an incomplete world view." Sometimes when someone wants to go, we have to accept that.

[edit: btw, OAG logged off two and a half hours after his good-bye post and has not been back to this site.]

It's always sad for me to see a well respected fellow member leave a forum. For some reason I just came across their thread but have some of the same thoughts such as, "OAG why are you leaving?". I hope it's nothing that was said on this forum or even something in his/her personal life that maybe we could have helped them with.
Although I didn't know the forum member as well as most, I too am also sorry to see OAG leave and can only hope there is a change of heart and we see OAG post here again.

There are a few notable folks who have left, OAG being the last one I can think of. I miss astromeria, I wonder what ever happened to her?

Astro had an illness, IIRC. I believe that she has recovered and moved on to other interests.

Why not send her a PM or an e-mail if her profile allows that?

Some people leave without a goodbye, some like OAG bid farewell. I don't remember ever formally saying goodbye to places I used to post.

But like everyone else I hope OAG is doing well!
