Special Thanks

After dropping my oldest child back off at the airport to go back to college and placing my kid's future in the pilots' hands, I began thinking about all of the hundreds of thousands of people in my life who have made a positive impact. To those who have gone before us and to those who follow, I am thankful for each and every one of you. Without out you, I would not be who I am today, so thank you to everyone who has made a positive impact on my life.
