Yes, the KURO was indeed an admirable "servant." As far as "retirement," I am glad my daughter and her family will be able to enjoy its excellent PQ for (hopefully) years to come.

Regarding the Sony being the perfect replacement, as you know I had my eye on the OLED technology for the last few years. But in the end I craved a big screen and LG's 77" OLED is priced somewhere in the stratosphere (at over 20k) and there was no way I would ever consider such a price (the Sony cost about 75% less). The OLED definitely has better black levels (for with it being a self-emissive display, the pixels completely turn completely black when called upon to do so) than the Sony, but they aren't without problems. There are still some uniformity issues and at times the blacks are too strong and crush detail. They also don't have as good an up-scaler as the Sony, so "all things considered," the Sony was the most practical choice. Plus, it was good enough to win 2nd place in the Flat Panel Shootout this year. I'm satisfied with "second best!"
