We lost a couple of people to redundancies at work today. It's always sad to lose staff but this one manager in particular had been with the firm since before I began over 10 years ago. Through mergers and acquisitions Rob had been the steadying hand; in times of confusion, he had the insight and good humour to help us through and somehow with Rob around I felt that good sense would prevail. Today after 22 years he's gone, lost to the 'sense' of accountancy and rightsizing, he'll be fine, but us? Hmm of that I'm not so sure any longer.
