Goodbyes

I just said goodbye for maybe the last time to the one man who is most responsible for helping me get this job. Kinda wierd. He was the one we had the luncheon for today. More of a roast than anything. But that's what he wanted. He's worked for various aspects of this company for 40 years. 40 years. Man that's such a long time. Just seems wierd that he won't be taking the reigns on future projects. I seriously doubt I'll be with this company for 40 years. 30 is probably pushing it too. But you never can tell I guess. I wonder if her ever thought he would be in publishing that long.

He's such a kind man too. The kind of person you really aspire to be. He had only met me once when I first interviewed. He's a senior VP who works out of the California office. Something had gotten screwed up with the way I had filled out my paperwork and HR was threatening not to hire me but Jim found out and took charge and made sure I got hired. He's been a mentor ever since. I only hope the effort I put into my projects is half of the effort he puts into his. If it is, I'll go far in this industry.

He always stops by my office for a chat when he's in town as he just did for the last time. I'll miss him but I wished him good luck with his retirement and told him to have fun.
