Chief: It has been a pleasure knowing you in your current capacity. Both professional and personable, you have done great job for Galveston. Best of luck with your new position and don't be a stranger in the future; Hutto is not far away.

Chief, three important things to say to a coworker or friend who is moving on:

1) Well Done

2) Thank You

3) All the best.

I hope the future "exceeds expectations". Thanks, Chief.


Worked with Mike Wisko years ago and he was always a stand up guy and gentleman. Best of wishes to you and your family Chief. Thank you for your dedicated, knowledgeable service. Godspeed.
