I usually feel sad when a colleague of mine leaves the company. Most of us have been there for a very long time and it's like a second family, so when they leave or retire it's a very sad occasion as you don't get to see them on a daily basis anymore. I try to keep in touch with the people who have left but it's not the same as seeing them everyday at work.

Hi podqueen.You're right.I felt sad yesterday when a colleague of mine(one of my best colleagues)gave me a farewell hug.I saw happy and sad tears trembling from her eyes.It was very moving but we promised to keep in touch at all times.We wished each other good luck in future challenges.Thanks for the comments.
