So long, Mariko. At least you got the send off you so deserved, where you got to enjoy the attention of being center, and show us in some ways what could have been with your commanding stage presence.

I am also glad the whole thing did not become a tear fest. If anything, the tears that were shed were tears of joy, of a future to be proud and of having left a secure legacy with the team.

The event in some ways could also be called a celebration, of seven successful years, of a career well done and of a life well lived. That in addition to bring a sense of maturity and stability to a group that has had its boat rocked many times over the years.

So goodbye and all the best to the Mariko on top, who has in many ways been the unpredictably enjoyable tower of the 48Family.
