Dear editor, As an employee of Jumbo Video in Georgetown since 1995 I would like to thank, not only the wonderful customers who walked through the doors faithfully, but the employees as well. I honestly admit that I am missing my work and the customers at Jumbo very much, but most of all the staff. Now that I think back I must admit Jumbo was one of my "happy places". Terry and I had an amazing crew when Jumbo closed their doors on August 23, 2006. I remember my first day starting at Jumbo as a supervisor with the first owner-- we had 25 employees-- and when Jumbo closed we had nine, including Terry and I. With there being only nine of us, we were able to build wonderful friendships. There were tough situations that arose between us at times, as this happens in most workplaces, but overall we got along pretty well. I want to thank Terry for being a great manager and allowing me to have a family life outside of my job...that meant more then you'll ever know. And to the rest of you-- Chris, Bryan, Sarah, Kevin, Ben, Kirstin and Melanie thank you for making Jumbo Video a great place to work. Michelle Feenstra, Rockwood
