We have a lost an employee, a friend and a family member.
On Friday January 11th 2008 our driver "Chuck" past away. He had joined us back in 2006 as one of our drivers. He was an important part of our business not just because of his position but because of what he brought every single day to our customers. Soon after he was hired we began to hear responses from our customers about him. He just knew how to treat our customers and that is something that comes along once in a great while.
We deal with emotions every single day in our business and sometimes it can be a little scary at times but to have the right people in place that can handle our customers emotions is something that is needed in our business. From the person taking the order to the person that hands the arrangement to the recipient. You could defintly say that Chuck completed that important circle for us.
Of course Chuck loved flowers. You could say he really loved flowers! There wouldn't be a day that he would not walk into the coolers to glance around the flower selection. The one thing that he did say to us so many times and it still sticks in my mind as I type this. He really enjoyed working for us.
Uncle Chuck we loved having you work for us too. Thank you so much and we will miss you!!
On Friday January 18th the staff of Everyday Flowers will be attending Charles services at Long Beach Memorial from 1PM to 4:30pm.
