May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
May the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
May the Lord hold you in the palm of His hand.
My thoughts and prayers are with you. If you need anything, please do not hesitate to reach out.
