A lad that I will never forget by Eric Hofmann

Finishing the rest of our project and enjoying the final days staying on the island of Inishturk, I have learned a great amount about the culture of the island, the construction of our project, and the people of the island.  On this trip, we met an amazing lad named Gus, who helped us out onsite with our project. Gus became more than just a co-worker on the site...he became a "true lad" in my life. Working with Gus every day from morning to dusk whether it was raining or getting attacked by our little gnat friends, was an amazing experience.  He brought life and laughter to the site every single day making everyone of us feel at home.  Even when he wanted his "little elves" for an extra hand on site brought smiles to all of our faces.

Getting to know Gus and even his kids was great.  Days after work on the site having a few pints together talking about life made the experience of the gathering and being on Inishturk so much better.

I am truly going to miss him and remember all of the moments we all had with him. But it's not's see you later, my lad.
