Dear Jenny

It's sad to hear that a great team that produce an excellent tool for
displaying a lot of our own work will not longer be funded.
As an end user I have to say THANK YOU SO MUCH to all your effort for
producing great tools, but also for given us support on how to use GrADS.

I wish you all success with your new plans!

Cheers from Mexico City.
Julio Figueroa.
Offshore Forecast Specialist.
