Nice job, Chrsti...Loved your story. Both of my kids have literally grown up on Southwest Airlines, and it has been particularly gratifying for me, as well, to share my "work/ home away from home" with my son for the past several years. Today is his last day as an Ops Sup at HOU ... he starts in TPA (my home town, incidenatlly) on February 1. Although my daughter opted for school teaching (as I did myself years ago), I hope that she will "see the light" one day and become Cope #3 at SWA. While only two of us are "blood relatives," I have had the pleasure over the past 25 years of recommending a handful of friends to the Company, all of whom, I'm happy to say, are still "family members." Your story, and others like it, should serve notice that the Company's legacy is in good hands.
