Paula’s Farewell Thoughts
“True friends don’t say Good-Bye,
They just take extended leaves of absences from each other.”
As I informed you all in the last month, I am moving on to a new challenging position at the end of September – retirement. . My last working day is Friday, Sept. 30th.
Today I want to take the opportunity to thank all of the staff for being such a great team to work with this past 2 1/2 years.
It has been amazing working with you all and I will miss your enthusiasm, perseverance, and the ‘never say die’ spirit and of course the talent that you brought to our AgeCare family. I thank you for all your support throughout and hope you continue to extend your cooperation to the current leadership teams and the succeeding manager. I wish you all, my fellow partners Aramark & SimpeQ, all sub-contractors and everyone in the larger AgeCare family, all of Life’s Very Best!
I have been a part of this community for 2.5 years and it has been an honour to serve you and learn from you all. You have been like family in my heart. All of you have been so wonderful and I have always felt like this was my home when I was around you.
I will have to leave all of you for I am retiring to Vancouver Island to be with my family. I will miss all of you dearly and would enjoy it very much if we could keep in touch. I will never forget any of you.
I leave with mixed emotions because I have made so many good friends over these past 2 1/2 years. My life has been greatly enriched by the kindness and encouragement so many of you have shown to me. I will always be grateful for the many family members I have met along the way and the wonderful memories I take with me.
Family … isn’t always blood. They are the people in your life that want you in theirs; the ones who accept you for who you are. The ones that would do anything to see you smile, and love you, no matter what.
A Good-Bye is never painful unless you are never going to say Hello again.
With love, respect & fond regards,
