Captain, first and foremost I want to thank you for your years of service and dedication to the guild and raid. For what it's worth, my comments tonight about being on time were not directed at you, I know you and Steph are PST and 6PM is tough to make. My comments were directed at the people in the guild chat and whispers asking for invites 2 seconds after logging on. So please don't think my comments were in any way directed towards you. I sincerely apologize if that's how my comments were perceived.
That being said, real life should always come first. Dinners with siblings, birthdays, dating - all these things should take higher priority than raiding. If you've been missing those kinds of events for raiding, I can definitely empathize with your situation. I hope you enjoy your newly found freedom!
All the best,
