Letter to the editor: Postal worker grateful to all

To all patrons of the E.M.P.O. (East Middlebury Post Office),

As the old saying goes, “All good things must come to an end.” Due to minor medical circumstances, it’s finally time to retire. I’ve had a great run, and thanks to the USPS, I can retire quite comfortably and my husband and I plan on a cruise around the world! (lol).

“Find a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.” I’ve always said the best part of my job is meeting and seeing all the people over the counter. I want to sincerely thanks all the wonderful people I’ve had the pleasure to serve. It has truly been the highlight of my job and a true “pleasant departure from the ordinary.”

I also want to thank the awesome team I’ve had the pleasure of being part of — The Boys:

Wayne, the best “boss” I’ve ever enjoyed working with. He was always there for me, guided, taught and put up with me! I couldn’t have asked for better. And Willy, my fellow clerk and best “Bar Back.” A team player, a great help and a great guy. Thanks for everything boys. We sure did have a lot of laughs. We’d fly by the seat of our pants but we’d always land smoothly at the end of the day.

And thanks to the “Dynamic Duo” from Ripton — Laurie and Randy, who always made sure the mail went through. Laurie — always there when I needed a hand. Thank you for everything. I may have lost my teammates, but I walk away having gained my wonderful friends.

Again, my sincerest heartfelt thank you to everyone for a truly unforgettable and enjoyable experience.

I never ask for much in life. The only thing is to ask to be remembered when I am gone.

Always and with my best regards,

Lynne Beerman
