I'm Sad


One of our employees who's from Mexico is going home. For good. I'm going to miss him.

In the beginning he spoke very little English. That was eons ago. Now, he's fluent. And for all of this time, he's been trying to teach me Spanish. I've failed miserably.

That's how we became friends. I 'hola' him, because we're a family business and he's like family.

I'm gonna miss him. Say a prayer or think a happy thought as he takes a 36 hour bus ride home to San Luis Potosi. It'll be tough, but I bet it's been tougher being away from his grandchildren.

Buen Viaje, Roga!

Just wanted to say sorry about your friend. That's really tough. I always hate goodbyes.

Adios, amigo. I hope they have internet connection where he's going so you can keep in touch.

That is one long bus ride. Why did he have to leave? I know you'll miss him and hopefully you can keep in touch.
