Hey team, all right, it is Thankful Thursday again, and here we are. Today, I’m super thankful and want to share with you who and why we are so thankful for Jim Pruitt. Jim is actually getting ready to retire. So in the next couple of weeks, Jim won’t be working every day with us.
Oh my goodness! I could probably spend an hour or more just talking about all the things that Jim has done over the years for us. He is an amazing guy. A nice guy, a hard worker, a straight shooter, and super knowledgeable. We are going to sorely miss having Jim around and taking care of our team, especially those of you up in Longview. We’re gonna see a little bit of a void in having him around. But we are so thankful that Jim has worked such a long and hard career. Doing so many great things in so many ways. We thank you for his service to the Navy for so many years. Doing so many great things for the Armed Services and doing great work for the community and Longview and for the team all these years.
So, Jim, thank you, buddy. We wish you the absolute best. He’s going to probably come back a little bit here and there and work on some special projects and stuff. Mostly because I think that his wife, Anita, is going to kick him out of the house when she realizes that he’s around too much. But we absolutely appreciate everything that you have done for us. We are so thankful that we had the time that we had with you. And we wish you the absolute best as you continue to move forward and get into those DIY projects and the honeydew list that Anita’s got for you. We will miss you, but today is about just being thankful that you have been a part of this team for so many years.
So, God bless you, brother. You earned it, you deserve it, and we appreciate you. So, God bless. And the rest of you, get back to work and be valuable, just like Jim Pruitt, because nothing less will do. I’ll see you guys next week.
