Cupcakes for Miles
Today was a sad day, I took a half day to go to a memorial service for my first manager at the company I work at. He passed away a couple days after my birthday. He was such a kind person, I hadn't worked for him in 5 years but he had left a birthday card at my desk for me. I had taken the day off for my anatomy scan. I was pleasantly surprised by a birthday card with a cupcake on it when I returned to work the next day. I eagerly wrote him to tell him we are expecting a boy, fully expecting to run into him at the cafeteria or the parking lot, but he passed away two days later at the age of 52. What a huge loss for all of us. As I went to fill out my out of office, I realized the last day I was off I missed seeing Miles. The service was really nice and a fighter jet flew by at the very end. Tomorrow there is a celebration of life for Miles. I was going to bring cookies but I was reminded of his card with the cupcake, so I made both. I will always remember your smiling face Miles and I hope to remember to treat others as well as you did, you will be missed.
