Loss of a Great Guy

On Wednesday, June 12/2013, the Sansom Equipment Family lost a good friend and colleague, Michel Boyer from Gorman Rupp Pumps. He was more than a business associate and our district manager, he was a true friend to all. Whenever we needed him, he was there, he had a great sense of humor and always had time to sit down and talk to help with a problem, even if it was not business related or nothing to do with Gorman Rupp. Michel, you will be missed and in tribute to you i post this Irish prayer:

Don’t grieve for me, for now i am free

I follow the plan God laid out for me

I saw his face, i heard his call

I took his hand and left it all

I could not stay another day

To love, to laugh, to work and play

Tasks left undone must stay that way

And if my parting has left a void

Then fill it with remembered joy

A Friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss

Ah yes, these things i , too shall miss

My life’s been full, i’ve savoured much

Good times, good friends, a loved one’s touch

Perhap’s my time seemed all too brief

Don’t shorten yours with undo grief

Be not burdened with tears of sorrow

Enjoy the sunshine of the morrow

Cheers good friend!
