"It does seem that we did choose wisely in having you lead this important piece of our family business: selling our farms in a climate that does appear to be cooling; setting a reserve that forced closure a bit higher than the market was supporting; selling my Mother's 81 outside the sale and, finally often reattacking parcels in an effort to generate a higher net return. Now, I can move forward firm in the knowledge that we executed a plan at the right time and had the right team. Again it has been a pleasure working with you." -- Nichols Family
