    Joe and Team,

    Congrats on your groundbreaking. I so wish I was there to enjoy it with you. You may not remember me, I was at Gath in 2007. I try to keep up with what’s going on with the hopes of soon returning. I was glad to see Amit is part of your team; tell him I said hello. I will be following your work closely.
