This starts my last day at WebMD. And, yes I start here, like I did for so many mornings. You were my "big" community, the one that I liked to always know what was happening right away, and my favorite. (Long before I had someone with diabetes in my home)

I have missed you since that first morning I didn't get the honor of checking in with you about the weekend. I will miss you even more after today.

I do promise to get a regular member name and stop in from time to time. It won't be Louise--they retire mod names like beloved sports players or something.

The thing that I want to remind you as I head off to a new adventure--YOU are the community, the heart and soul of the community. You each lead every time you post. You welcome, you show empathy, you share views, you share your lives, and those actions make this community truly wonderful.

Be good to one another. Disagree with ideas and not with personalities. Welcome the new members. Be gentle with the overwhelmed. I know. You know. I have said those things a million times. I mean them though.

I flurry about driving the other mods nuts with last minute do and don' a first time mom leaving her child with a sitter. I keep reminding myself that the communities I tended were never MINE, each just allowed me a part in the community. Communities belong to the members--that's you. Keep this place great for each other, for the new members that come along, and for me to visit.

Yeah, I love you. All of you. (and you know I am not the mushy type with members) Take care of yourselves and each other.

Good luck Louise and take care.

Louise, I wish you loads of success in anything you pursue after WebMD. Thanks for all the time and caring you put into your postings. I know when I retired from teaching, I would miss the children I taught. What you will find is that you will begin a new road. The road you left is filled with people who have learned a lot more about diabetes from your leadership on this board, whether it be from other members, WebMD sources they you offered them to read, or ideas that you had yourself.

I want to wish you the very best luck and happiness.

Dear Louise, even though I havent been here much of late, I just wanted to let you know that you will be greatly missed. Please take good care of you and yours, and come back to visit us. Hugs and God bless you always,

Louise_WebMD_Staff replied to Hootyowl2's response:
Aww Hooty, thanks for stopping in. I have missed you being here more.

I will try on the taking care. You know me though--better at tending everyone else.
