hi Karen;

I'd like to thank you for your great, indispensable work over the past
few years. your enthusiasm and involvement in GNOME have been
incredible and inspiring.

I wish you all the luck in the world as the Conservancy ED: they are
incredibly lucky to have you.

having you on the board and on the engagement team would be great for GNOME.
