Elmhurst, IL: His name is John and he is our UPS man. Very upbeat and a positive ball of energy. John lost his wife in February at the young age of 40 to an aggressive form of breast cancer that took her life in just 14 months. And yet John would never show it. He did, however, send us a card thanking our company for all the well wishes everyone gave him. We are the kind of company, he says, that he wants to make as his first stop of the day because he likes it here, he likes the people and he likes to think that he is partially responsible for our company's success. He's actually right.
This is the illustration I made, signed by everyone in the company, for a card we gave him. I tried not to make the card an advertisement for our company but to represent the relationship we have with our UPS man. His name is John and he is our UPS man.
