Tim Howard plays the final match of his illustrious Everton career today. He's leaving the Premier League in the summer transfer window and heading to the Colorado Rapids. Before he steps on the Goodison Park field for the last time as a player, he sent out this touching goodbye letter to his longtime supporters:
EVERTON, you have become a part of my soul. You'll forever be in my heart. COYB!!!— tim howard (@TimHowardGK) May 15, 2016

This season has been tough of Howard as he's struggled for minutes and has dealt with some criticism from some of the same fans that he's thanking today.
The USMNT legend has had many great years in the blue of Everton. He leaves the club he loves and returns home this summer. His goodbye letter is a touching tribute to all those that supported him over the years and a reminder that he's a class act to the end.
