We celebrated my dad’s upcoming retirement today. A reception downtown Indianapolis, complete with almond M&M’s, popcorn, cupcakes, and a basketball hoop. My entire life, my dad has worked hard at Eli Lilly. Lilly moved us to Puerto Rico and Italy. Lilly provided for my years at Miami. Lilly allowed for countless Christmas gifts, school dance outfits, new pairs of shoes, meals, and vacations. And much, much more. I was thankful today as I listened to friends and colleagues speak in honor of my dad and his 32 years at Lilly. Thankful for the blessing Lilly has been to me, through my dad. Thankful for people who value my dad and his character. Thankful that my dad is just my dad and sets a fantastic example no matter what. On vacation, at work, or on a regular Saturday morning. His legacy was obvious today; impressive, full of integrity, and hilarious. Here’s to the next chapter, Dad!
