Farewell to Bill/SFNM
« on: January 01, 2014, 02:18:47 PM »
It is with a heavy heart that I announce that one of our Global Moderators has chosen to resign due to medical/family issues. Bill has been a member here for over eight years and has logged over 4,000 hours on the forum. He has been invaluable in helping with the day-to-day operation of the forum and he will be greatly missed. I hope that he and his family can overcome the difficulties that lie ahead; he will always be welcome here should he ever decide to return. Take care, Bill, I wish you the best of luck in 2014.

I am very sorry to hear that there are problems.  I wish you and your family the best in dealing with difficulties.

I have gained a lot from your posts.  Thanks also for being a moderator for so long.

Bill, just read this thread. WOW, it is always sad to see an honored member leave.  :(  Worse yet when it is due to conditions beyond your control.


Walk in the light.


Many thanks.

I sincerely hope that Bill is only resigning from his moderating duties and not leaving the forum completely.  As sad as it is losing him as a moderator, losing his contributions as a member would be truly horrible.

I wish you the best of luck with the difficulties that lie ahead.

This is very sad news. I have enjoyed your posts and learned so much.  I was really looking forward to you leading the "sous vide" thread.

All the best to you and your family, hope everything works out.

Thanks
