Every time...

...I talk to someone, IM or real life, I'm just fighting tears.

Thinking about Laura, and Colin, and Ford, and Greg and his two daughters. All the families.

...Our company Family. HPTi may be growing, and spread out across the country, but we're still small and tight. Everyone is hit hard up here; prettypammie and I worked for HPTi in Virginia; for part of our tenure we were both at corporate headquarters working right down from the hall from Don.

I just can't stop thinking about him...you know, he was one of those people who 99% of the time had an effusive, infections smile. He had a temper, yes, but he was so completely understanding of "good mistakes" (best effort, poor results)...if he knew had put your all in and still didn't get there, he'd throw a shoulder in with you and find a way to push through the problem...or come up with a new way that routed you right around those pesky obstacles.

Okay, got to just fight through it...that deadline hasn't gone away.
