I’ve grown accustomed to your face

Not so long ago, I received a note in my inbox informing me and the rest of the Flight staff that 30-year veteran Graham Warwick was leaving the company to take on a new challenge. Seeing the news in writing was rather jarring for me. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Graham for nine years (several of those at Flight’s US branch in DC), and I wasn’t quite sure how to react. So I didn’t. No message of “congratulations” or “good luck” was sent. No query as to why he’d leave was made. How do you say in an email that you are in complete awe of a person?

“I work with Graham Warwick of Flight.” I’ve said those words so many times, in explanation and in boast. Last week I had a chance to tell Graham in person how I feel and share a few drinks with the Flight team. It was a magical night – one that will not be forgotten. Who could forget? The Woracle was in attendance. Second nature to me now…
