A message to Richard Arnold from Henry Klain and his wife Darlene


Well Richard, another milestone has arrived.  It's one that spells "success at arriving in life".  I have always said that ones goal was to arrive at retirement with your faculties intact.  I think you may have accomplished this, but only Gail would know for sure!


But on a serious note I do want to express my gratitude for your support over the years, it has been a real pleasure to have spent time working together.  We have shared a number of interesting challenges (in fact the list is quite long) and have shared many laughs.  I have also observed and have benefitted personally from your passion for excellence, your willingness and ability to fix and build just about anything.  More importantly I have witnessed how you offer help and support to people you come in contact with.  Your acts of kindness and on ongoing caring nature is admirable and certainly do not go unnoticed.  As many of you have probably heard Richard referred to by some as "King Richard", although a suitable title, I believe it would be even more appropriate for Richard to be referred to as the "King of Heart"….actually your cabbage rolls are very good also!


Enough of the gushy stuff, Darlene and I would like to take the opportunity to toast Richard, Gail and family….may you enjoy health, happiness and the time earned to pursue life's pleasures.


In the meantime we will continue to value and enjoy our friendship with you both.




Henry & Darlene

Last Day At Work

Hi All,


Today is my last day at work. I would like to thank everyone for the many years of friendship, good times, jokes and fun. I can honestly say for me that the good times far out weigh the bad times. I have had many bosses over the years but none of them could even come close to the one I am about to report to daily, not just Monday to Friday.


I wish all of you the best in the future with good health.


Richard Arnold
