I've had several directors from other businesses congratulate me and surprisingly a few have also cried. It's very kind of them to care so much. I'm starting to feel like I will have accomplished quite a bit and affected many people in my chosen career. It's wonderful to not go out with a negative experience.
Congrats on a great career and leaving on a positive note, make sure your next life chapter is even better.

I suspect you and the coworkers will continue to be good friends for a long time. Congrats and well done Ally!

Doing things today that others won't, to do things tomorrow that others can't. Of course I'm referring to workouts, not robbing banks.
