To a good man
Tomorrow, my wife & I, along with our kids,grandkids, and others will gather for lunch at my mom's.(used to be mom & dad's) We will be remembering my dad who went home to be with his maker just five years ago. I write this memorial not because my dad was famous or anything like that.( He, like so many living in NJ was a chemical engineer.)I write this because without his influence AND permission, there would not be a stable of motorcycles in the garage,or a bunch of college attendence papers hanging in my office. My oldest brother would not be getting ready to retire from a lifetime of service to our country(just about all of it--top-top secret), my other brother would probably not own an international company,oh, and of course we all are motorcyclists.
At his funeral,the preacher spoke a lot about Dad's generosity.Dad always put it to us kids rather simply:"To whom much is given-much is expected". I think it might be a verse from the good book. Anyway, my new signature line today sums up how my dad lived, and would encourage all of you, my friends, to live as well.
Thanks for allowing me this time. Thanks for reading,it means a lot to me.
