So great to see you and your beautiful family!! You inspired me the day we met (1999) and you inspired me again at your retirement party. You truly are unlike anyone else – and I mean that in the best way. Attitude and the Power of Positivity is always present with you and an ongoing challenge for me and many others. Being in your presence always brightens my day. Thank you for sharing your many gifts, talents and treasures. I’m a better person because I have been so fortunate to work with you and be friends with you!

I love ya man!! Oh Captain my Captain!!

Best wishes on your continued journey.

  1. Jeff,

    That’s one of those messages you save for a day when you wonder if you are making a difference and go, “See there – I am!”

    Great message!!!


  2. Bob, truth be told, the question can haunt us daily, “Are we making a difference today (right here, right now?”

    Be amazed and be amazing today. It’s one of two choices we get today. The other one is the opposite.
