This charity initiative has been a large focal point in my life this year, however I have reached a point in life where due to my health I have to make some tough decisions, mainly under doctors orders and against my normal character to tough things out. I dont want any sympathy as I will battle on regardless and have the strength of character to do so.
However I am unable to maintain the level of commitment that this projects needs and deal with my other responsibilities so I have to walk away from this venture, and have had to make some dramatic changes that have seen me effectively kill off my business as my health deteriorates. I will still give what support I can but I cannot continue to steer the ship in any shape or form.
I will of course honour my commitment to send out all the work to be painted once I get the outstanding figures and fulfil my obligation to base all the figures and units to give them a cohesive appearance. However this has to be the extent of my commitment.
I am disappointed that I could not see this through to the end of the year, and get it on the road, but I cant guarantee the future at the moment, and must place the needs of my family first which means taking a new career path at the very least to preserve my health.
I am sure the project will continue to grow and be supported by you all with James now heading up this project and see it through to what I hope becomes a very successful conclusion.
I wish you all every success both for now and in the future.
Sorry you have had to do this, as I know how much it meant but it's the best decision if it helps you.ReplyDelete
I am sure the work you have done so far has made this the success it is now bound to be.
Don't walk away sad, walk away proud
Sad news bit I think the right decision. Best wishes to you and your family.ReplyDelete
You always have our full support Loki been an pleasure to have you help setting up this venture.ReplyDelete
Loki - your health is the most important thing and I wish you well on adjusting to life and doctor's orders. We all know that this was a hard decision for you, but the right one.ReplyDelete
Take care of yourself,
Sorry to here that mate, but as others have said, your health is more important.ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear you have to step down! Good luck with everything and thank you for taking the project as far as you did.ReplyDelete
Take care Andrew. Your health is more important.ReplyDelete
Life forces all of us to prioritize; I'm glad you can make this choice. Hang in there, and thanks for the work you've done here.ReplyDelete
Its a damn shame Loki, health and family has always gotta come first!ReplyDelete
Good luck, health and family must come first...ReplyDelete
Loki - health and family always come first (as others have said) - there is never anything wrong with focusing on you and your familyReplyDelete
Best of luck
Your health will always be more important Andrew. Take care.ReplyDelete
You can't look after anyone else if you don't look after yourself first mate. Take care and I hope things improve for you.ReplyDelete
Health and family first mate. My wife fell sick and I had to close my business and seek employment elsewhere once she recovered. It was the best move I made. I hope your health bounces back. My thoughts and prayers. Regards ChrisReplyDelete
Your health comes first - take it easy, and rest secure in the knowledge that BfC is in good hands. Thank you for all your guidance and inspiration getting this project off the ground!ReplyDelete
You have nothing without your health. Take care of yourself and your family. Good luck and best wishes!ReplyDelete
Tough news Andrew. Please take care of yourself and we hope you'll be up to sledging and badger baiting.ReplyDelete
Thank you to you all I will still be around just very much in the back ground rather than at the forefrontReplyDelete
Family and health must come first Take careReplyDelete
Aside from your mother-in-law, the last thing you should be worrying about is this project. It's developed a life of its own now and you've done the hard work for us anyway (thank God!).ReplyDelete
Your health's far more important - this isn't a rehearsal, so get it right. Look after yourself, or, more likely, do as you're told.
