We have a man that has been at our office well over 30 years. A top producer I might add. He was even a backup Principal Broker when the boss was out. He also was the bus driver for our company tours and the MLS tour. That amounts to 3 times a week.
Retirement had been babbled about for some time, but it was just babble. He took a 2 week vacation and came back for a week. Then family needs called him to another state for 6 weeks. Just before he got back, a close friend nerar his age died unexpectedly.
He decidde to ail out quietly. First extra furniture left one afternoon, but he rode the tour bus. Then on the weekend his computer and wall art left. I asked others about a party for him, He wants to quietly go. Because of that I cannot mention the name yet.
It will leave a large hole. The ones in the office that pay attention are saddened and others have no clue. I wish him the best as he moves to the next chapter of his life. That chapter is years away for me. Your thoughts?
