Like that of the NFO, one’s personal life can become obsequiously overshadowed with a monetary focus. Being enslaved to the almighty dollar can short-change that ride down memory lane.
 
Like the letters shared from NFO members, there are job related letters of commendation in my personal life that add credence to a corporate ride down memory lane. Excerpts from some of these letters will bring back memories to those whose lives have become an integral affirmation of a path traveled together.
