Re: [council] Farewell Council !
Your contribution to the ICANN process ha been distinguished and enormous.It will
be a great loss to us all to have you on the 'sidelines'..I am pleased you intend
to stay involved and trust you will remain an active part of the ICANN community
for many years. Thank you so much for all you have given to me personally and to
the DNSO and all of ICANN
Best Personal Regards
