Dear Michael, Thank you for unique goodbye letter. I was really honored to work with you. You always show great respect to me and my work and you were always ready to help me. I saved your new contacts and I really count that someday somewhere we meet again. I would be very happy if you ever come to Slovenia (business or private) – that you give me a call and go for a beer J. Wish you all the best on your future professional and private way. We will stay in touch … Kind regards, Martina

Well Michael – now I love you even more than before. Highly respect your brave way to follow your inner voice – not trivial when most of humans plough the same furrow like life is forever. Could not avoid the tune – talking about revolution – so go and have yours. We will miss you here . All the best! Rafi

Michael, this was the loveliest goodbye message I have ever seen. I watched the video smiling yet with tears in my eyes. I have really nice memories with you in the past 8 years since we have known each other - making you one of the few very special people i know since i have been working with DHL... Only saying goodbye to you as a colleague - I know we will stay in touch and meet shortly. I know this change will hold fantastic things for you. Wishing you a relaxing break and all possible good. Lots of love, Anna.

Dein Ausgeglichenheit war etwas das mich immer beeindruckt hat und eine wertvolle Grundlage ist um die richtigen Lösungen zu finden. Ich würde gerne mit Dir in Kontakt bleiben und auch in Zukunft erfahren was du so machst. Auf jeden Fall wünsche ich Dir alles Gute, viel Grück und Spass bei allem was du tust. Liebe Grüsse aus der Schweiz, Martin.
