Thanks to all for your kind and sentimental thoughts. That's probably one of the greatest assets of this forum. It's ALWAYS been about the people and camaraderie. In most cases, the wine is just an offshoot and an excuse to share things of value and interest.
Some of the most important and resonating words given to me once was " don't be the type of person who knows the price of everything, but the value of nothing".
I value all your friendships.
