New building 1983
What happened to our relationship in the next 25 years, or how our relationship a quarter of decade back depend on how close your heart and mind to someone.

I returned the message by wrote :"It means that she still remembered and love them". I hold my eyes hard not to shed a tear or two, remember long time ego. We leaved this small remote town behind, but we take the memory in our heart and mind wherever we go. This Branch is my first assigned as Branch manager and Soleman Lado and Gabriel Nahak, two officers in the second layers of the Organization.

Why the memory never fade away from my mind ? Because in 3 years, I run the branch in renting a very simple houses. In midday to afternoon we worked in sweating without a ceiling above our head without air con. Before I transferred to Java island , I had finished to build a new office building and residence side by side, as a remembrance as long as the building available.
Today, September 21, 2010 I text Mr.Soleman Lado called me in the phone chatting quite long for the first time after 25 years and his voice remained the same, but his photo with his wife grown old, next year he will enter pension period. Thanks my dear friend.
