Resignations, Good Lucks and Farewells

Today, I hugged Tito Kier twice before he finally go.
It's his last day today in the office. I almost forgot that it was his last day today, good thing I was chatting with some of my agents who were on lunch when he logged out of the clock for the last time.
The first hug was offerred by him. My reaction did not automatically kicked in but I knew something was different since Tito Kier does not always do that. He is one of the most reserved persons I know in my life-- and the person who makes it really hard for me to tell what his emotions are because 98% of the time he sports a poker face. The second hug was what I offerred after he logged out, when I finally realized what it actually was for.

When I went back to my station to continue with my pending deliverables, here's what I got from my email which almost made me cry:

Hi Team,

I would just like to take this opportunity to thank everyone.   I would say that working with you and APS has been the most memorable experience in my career. 
I wish everyone success.  It was a privilege working with the best and I couldn’t ask for more.  Thank you for all the support.  Take care and God speed. 

Have a blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year.

I have worked with him for roughly 3 years in the company and seldom had I seen him laugh, smile and chuckle. 98% of those laugh ans smiles I saw during his wedding (please see previous posts) which kind of a good feeling everytime. Maybe because it's rare.

I have never seen another person as OC as he is and who smell as good as him from 20 meters away.

You see, resignations are as good as someone leaving the country for a long period of time. We console ourselves that Facebook, Twitter and Yahoo are just there to connect us, but really, even with these technologies, there are some that we just lose along the years. Tito Kier does not have a Facebook account by the way.

I will miss you Tito Kier.
