As business owners, my partner Diane and I have encountered some tough situations that required making some uncomfortable decisions. We’ve always looked at those moments in our history as challenges that made us stronger as the EagleONE family. Yes, family. One thing we are most proud of is that we have developed a true family culture here, a place where people feel like they belong, like they are respected and treated like family, not mere employees.
There is a consequence to creating the family culture though, that Diane and I never anticipated. The loss of a family member. It is with a very heavy heart that I share that in the last two weeks, EagleONE has lost two family members. Barb Terrell left for her heavenly home the week of 25 July, finally succumbing to major health issues. Gaby Jacobs left for her heavenly home the week of 1 August, losing her battle with cancer.
Both ladies were the epitome of what we have always tried to instill here, service above self. They were long-tenured family who always went above and beyond the call of duty for clients and for other family members. They both brought their talents with a willingness to do whatever it took to make things better. It is difficult to do them justice and they will be forever missed.
Our faith tells us that this is a time of celebration, a time to be glad for them as they finally complete their earthly journey for rest in their eternal home. As much as we are sad at their loss, both of these wonderful ladies deserve the very best in eternity.
Rest in Peace Barb. Rest in Peace Gaby.
You will forever have a place in our hearts.
