91 years young and going strong

The founder of the company I work for is "91" years young (on the left, of course). He is a Structural Engineer. This beautiful man amazes me! He is semi-retired but comes in every day and the first words out of his mouth are "Gung Ho"!! and he moves his arm in an upward motion as he is saying it. I have never met such a positive, caring, honest, giving individual. It is such a pleasure to type a letter for him, or make him a fresh pot of coffee. I feel so honored to be his assistant. He treats each worker with such respect and makes you feel so important. His son is my boss and has the same qualities, can you believe? I am blessed to have a job such as this. This man never complains about ailments. He has had many falls and ups and downs but you never hear him complain. What really amazes me is, at 91 years of age, he got his first computer at work this week and is learning how to navigate. I walked by his office yesterday and he is working the mouse, trying to find information to read and looked totally wowed by his new found machine. He was so proud! Everyone at the office is lending a hand to help him out as he learns. Oh, and would you believe he also got a newer car recently....yes, he still drives! God love him......
The pretty gal next to him in the picture is also a very caring individual and a pleasure to work with as well. She would give you the shirt off her back. This picture was taken at our Christmas party. Her and I planned the party together and had a really good time.

This was just what I needed to hear today. My post yesterday was about just the opposite. Thanks!

Look at him! Awesome. 91. I can't even imagine. I hope I'm healthy in mind and body at 91. Or in Heaven with my Godly Father.
