Fill Your Boots

March 25, 2010 at 7:51 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 3 Comments

Note to our dear reader(s): Today’s post isn’t our usual silly take on daily life – every now and then we reveal a deeper side of ourselves, and hope it doesn’t tarnish our reputations 😉 Our regularly scheduled tomfoolery will return tomorrow…

Yesterday we received the sad news that our colleague, “Canadian Squirrel” (name changed for anonymity) passed away. Squirrel has been with the company since its founding ten years ago, and he will be dearly missed, especially by our fearless leader. Squirrel called everyone “dude,” encouraged us to “fill our boots” and even shared the strange tradition of Canadian “mummers” (we still don’t really get that one). He enjoyed golf, “Green Mountain time,” a delicious steak cooked to perfection, and a good joke (including when I changed his email settings so that every time he received a new email, the Staples “That was easy” slogan alerted him).

We know that he is watching over his wife and young son. And we are thankful for all the happy times we shared, and the knowledge that he is at peace.
