The Backstory

Love, cherish, and celebrate the people who make life special

Our Work Father

After 2 and a half decades with us, we want to thank you for your dedication, hard work, and committment. You've been everywhere from the R&D Department to Manufacturing to IT & Support. Work with you was fun and exciting, and we all love your hilarious family vacation stories. Hopefully now you'll have a chance to spend more time with the people you love. Stop in to say hello every now and again. 

With the help of the HR department, your family, and your work friends, we were able to put together a little keepsake. Cheers! Congrats! Well done! 

You're more value than words can describe.

The memories, milestones, and little moments in between

From Cubicles to Christmas Parties

From Jack

Thank you so much for the words of wisdom and the extra snacks while you were in the accounting department. I'm sure you probably have lots of favorite departments, but I'm hoping accounting was the best. We sure had a blast with you. 

You always showed up early and stayed late (unless it was Tuesday of the month - date nights with Charlene). You worked harder than many tenured employees and were so open to suggestions and improvement. I still remember the crazy conversation we had at the Christmas Party of '01 when we discussed the similarity of accounting and friendships. What a night! 

I wish you the best and hope you enjoy retirement! If you want to tee up some time, let me know. I can give you the retirement 101 guide. 

Your first cubicle buddie, Jack 

See you around, kid

From Angie


Its so sad to say goodbye to, so I'll just consider this a farewell. Im sure our paths will cross again at church or at our childrens recital or senior night (can you believe Raylin and Josiah will be HS grads soon?!). 

My favorite memory with you was definitely the thanksgiving potluck, sometime around 2010. We both brought the green bean casserole and decided a faceoff for best casserole was appropriate. Even though the winner was "too close to call", Ill admit that your secret ingredient realy stole the show. Save that recipe for the next generation! 

You've always beeen a relable, trustworthy co-worker and I knew I could count on you when we worked on teams together. Im happ that you're officially taking vacation days, and wish you the best in the future! 

Ta-ta for now~
