Today is the first day without, Suzanne. Suzanne has been our estimator/planner for the last 20 years. Her office was right next to mine and she was not just an employee, but is a friend. My late husband Ken and Suzanne worked very close together all through the years and he taught her a lot about printing. Suzanne retired yesterday to spend some much deserved time with her family. She is the kind of Grandmother who gets up at 4:00 AM to fix breakfast and take her Granddaughter to school. She has to drive quite a few miles to do this. We had a retirement party for her last week and when I tried to wish her well in her retirement, I cried. She wants to come and work from time to time and fill in for her replacement Kai.
Kai will do a wonderful job of filling big shoes in his position. Kai has been in graphic design and printing for many years. He was promoted from our graphics department to estimator /planner. I am enjoying working with him and hope that he does not want to retire anytime soon.
