Gabrielle 21 April > I would like to make the following statement:
"I had several reasons to resign AdvH2o on Friday, 13 April 2007, mainly them being due to lack of communication, morals & values missing from Management in those weeks after the mournful death of Larry.
Being a very loyal employee, I try to always give my best for everybody involved - clients & employer, that's just my nature! .... . but when it comes to bad KARMA, then I have to stick with my convictions.
After Larry's sad & sudden death, all was left to me to handle and/or to decide ( i.e. answering all mails & condolences, statements, the website changes with Hendry, tributes, coordination). I am not complaining about taking care of the aftermath of Larry's passing, I feel honored to have been a part of it.
But the lack of empathy from the H2o Management to the whole situation left me deeply troubled. I will not go into details.
Widya, as Office Manager took care of matters in Bali as good as she could.
I had a gut feeling the whole time, but hope kept me going.
On 13 April I confirmed an additional booking for the 27 APR trip and sent a message with this "great news".
Mr. Jacobs only replied, "not good news, this trip is cancelled", which had clients of mine & DD.
Finding out on 13 April, that this trip was cancelled and I was not even told the reason WHY or what's going on, led me to an immediate resignation, within minutes. I wanted to distance myself from these kind of business practices. Second mail I received from SJ, was firing me due to "lack of performance" ....!!
I also could not identify with, how Larry's widow and his US family have been treated the past weeks .. . or should I say, " NOT being treated" ?
The last few days I have been receiving mails from other AKguests & agents, telling me about their bookings being cancelled as well, due to "major engine problems".
I also have received plenteous encouraging mails regarding my decision and integrity.
All AK & AdvH2o business concerns should be addressed directly to the owner and proprietor Mr. Jacobs."
... end of statement

I hope this unfortunate situation is resolved quickly.
