Last week I was my oldest daughter’s date to attend her 20th years of service at Kaiser Permanente, Fontana. Needless to say I saw a lot of friends that I worked with during my 30 years at Kaiser. Memories rushed back as they came forth to say hello. Some reminded me of how I helped them during my tenure while others were just happy to see me out because of my illness. My good friends Kathy Christmas and Belinda Davis have come to see me at my celebration and send greetings all the time through my daughter Lynn Brown-Lee.
The other thing about Kathy, Belinda and Nori Moti is they were standing beside me and the family during our sons illness in 1995. They were and still are a part of that great nursing department that I worked closely with It was also exciting to see Bill Meyer since we worked together longer than any others.
He has put in 40 years with Kaiser with the majority of them at Fontana and the other few at West Los Angeles.
I remember when Bob Brewster and Jimmy Warrington came to Kaiser as a matter of fact Jimmy can be seen in the Kaiser “Thrive” commercial on television. I hired Bob’s mother as a driver for Kaiser back in 1970 or 71. Kim and I worked together in Human Resources as recruiters.
I don’t go that much anymore but I am glad my daughter asked her dad for a date, one I will never forget.
Congratulations Lynn on your 20 years of faithful service and the other 600 employees who received 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 35 and 40 years of service caring for others.
