Fifteen weeks ago, my brother announced that he was quitting the family business.
I couldn’t suppose the way my Mom reacted.
He told him that if he wasn’t wonderful enough to work with, then he wasn’t wonderful enough to be his father. My brother was so aggravated that he walked out of the beach house plus never returned. My father acted like his loss didn’t mean much to him, however I saw how he looked at my brother’s locker plus tools whenever he went into the office. He was devastated to not have him working with us. My Mom had his Heating plus Air Conditioning company for over thirty years plus I believe he wanted my brother to take over when he retired. When Bob quit the Heating plus Air Conditioning corporation, it was quite a blow to Mom. It has now been over a year, plus the loss of my brother is still being felt. Mom was devastated that Bob hadn’t showed up for Christmas or Thanksgiving last year. Thanksgiving was coming around in another week, plus he was starting to get depressed again! I got a iphone call from Bob about 2 weeks ago. He was married plus they had just had a little boy. He wanted his child to know his Grandparents. He said that he had missed all, but he was sure Mom was going to be proud of him. He had just purchased out an Heating plus Air Conditioning company in the local area. He was now going to be in competition with Mom. I told him I had taken over the Heating plus Air Conditioning company about more than 2 weeks earlier plus he laughed. He said the best Heating plus Air Conditioning professional had won, plus he couldn’t wait to see all the people.
