|Eugene with his cake|
It's been my experience in my many years in the work force, that good bosses are few and far between. That's why it was especially difficult to say good-bye to one of the good ones. My boss of six years, Eugene, recently took an early retirement. His last day at work was May 2nd. I told him that this was not acceptable, that he was supposed to hang around until I retired... but he wasn't dissuaded!
So much for my powers of persuasion.

|The cake says, "Thank you for your contributions to KOA's success!|
|Barbara and her sister Veronica|
|The special menu|
|I had a delicious Chicken Salad with a spicy ginger dressing|
|There was Marie's famous cornbread|
All of the Los Angeles office and our Corporate office staff attended.
|Stephen, Kevin and Kenneth|
(You can just see company CFO Juan in the far right corner)
|Doug, Mujib, Frank,. Min, Chuck and Joel|
|Eric, Albert and Dodds|
We made a few presentations to Eugene after lunch.
|We gave Eugene an iPad|
|Company President, Jimmy, with Ivy, Carlos, Steven and Kevin|
I think most of us were pretty bummed to be losing such a good boss.
|The cake was yummy|
A bit of lunch and cake can't make up for that.
Farewell, Eugene! May you have success in all that you do!
