He’s our Fearless Leader, our Rock of Gibraltar, our Protector and
Provider and the one we can lean on when life throws you a left hook.
I could go on and on about how important he is to me and to the team. After
18 years of spending most of my days with him (still) I have lots of evidence
of his total Fierceness! But for today, I decided to let his other “Work
Wife” speak for all of us. Here is what she said when she nominated
him for this coveted honor.
“I would like to nominate Bela for the Fierce Award. And it's
not just because he saved my ass in framing when my brother died, but
it's because he has used every single skill he has in his arsenal
to do something, for everyone, this month. He took over framing when I
was out for my brother's funeral. He is doing payroll for Bari while
she is out with her father's funeral. He's been checking in orders
for Don during the senior crunch. He helped Melanie get the laptop fixed
so she can keep doing viewing. He hung new paper rolls for Rakhi so she
can keep going with her photo shoots. He has done ordering and research
of Khye's equipment issues. He's counselled Valerie on all of
her car problems. And he already promised you that KK can learn to swim
in his pool - all while still doing his job, paying the bills, and buying
a house. Enough said?”
I think so Jelty. Enough said!
Thank you Bela for contributing the strength we all need to make it through
anything. None of us would be here without you.
