My PJ,

I will miss you dearly.
We miss you so much at Oracle.
You taught us all so much personally and professionally (technically).
When Norma told me, I cried and just thought of all the good times we had and all the great conversations.
Thank you so much for being a great friend and co-worker.

I love you so much!
