    With your soft voice and sincere ways the weather has gone on and now you with it. I will miss this. I have been a follower of WCCO since I was in high school and remember you from the beginning. Enjoy your family, your free (not scheduled to work) time and do the things that will keep you young, if not young at heart. You will be greatly missed by me and your fellow workers. Take Care and God Bless.
