I remember when Chris came to Detroit to train us on a new HR system. He was awesome and so down to earth. Most of the staffing managers went out to dinner with him one evening and he told us how much he loved pot know the remnants from cooked greens? Every time I would call him about something I would think about that and smile. Great guy!
