“I will still be helping out with a few things at 95Q for a little while at least and hope to be involved with it on some level moving forward. My 12-plus years here have been full of so many amazing memories. You, as an audience, embraced me from the beginning and I can only say thank you for that.”

Buffett Foundation.”
