Kudos & Kindness

I am 53 years old and am writing this before I run out of time. I am fighting terminal lung cancer. I believe that I am still alive because of the support that I have received from the management and staff of Lakeside Inn & Casino.

Most companies would be looking to fire me, but the Lakeside Inn has helped me every step of the way. The bottom line is not all that they look at. Let me tell you that chemo treatments are very costly.

I would like to give a special thanks to Bill Kartozian for having the foresight to hire people like Mike Bradford and Lon Rusk. Mike and Lon are men with compassion that I have not found in the business world. We are lucky to have leaders like this in our community.
