- A Friend Departs For Chicago
Today is the day we bid farewell (but not goodbye) to our close friend and former coworker Rob P. who has been promoted to a new position at his firms HQ in greater Chicago. He and his family make their final departure for the windy city today. It's easy to make ally's in the finance business, but much harder to make genuine friends. Lucky for me Rob has turned out to be both.
He'll be back in NY from time to time as business demands it, and my own travels will take me through Chicago now and then so it won't be so hard for the two if us to stay in touch. But I'll miss having him close enough to depend on, and we'll miss having his wife and kids so close as well. It's been really great having them all nearby.
Speaking for all those who have come to know both Rob and Jane, Chicago's gain is clearly NY's loss. We wish you all the very best.
And in the meantime, try to remember these helpful words:
"God loves a working man."
"Don't trust Whitey."
"And if you get something, see a doctor and get rid of it."
All the best buddy.
