A Salute to a Great Man

This weekend, I went to a funeral for one of the nicest gentlemen I've ever known. He was a truck driver with my company for nearly ten years, and I never recall having cross words with him. He was always respectful, always helpful, and always well groomed. He learned he had cancer around Halloween and died from it very quickly. He will be greatly missed in this business and this world.

When someone dies, it's hard, but it's even harder when someone is one of the best people you know. I'm sorry about your friend.

Sorry about your friend suffering from cancer, Robert. Nice tribute to him.

Robert said...

Fortunately, I don't think he suffered long, since he only knew he had it about three months.
