Yesterday I attended a wedding of a former employee. Pictured above is me with him (right) and another former employee who was the best man. They are both just a little older than my son and came to work for me when my son had left for college. I guess I kind of looked at them as my "surrogate sons" when they worked for me and they have sinced stayed friends of mine. They are great guys and I am so glad that our paths crossed in life and I can consider them "family". They have moved away so I don't see them very often, but I do see their parents and we stay in touch when we can.
Friends are important in life....don't forget that!
