Welcome to my Personal Page
Friends and Family,
I'll be riding again next month in the Tour de Cure bike ride to raise money for diabetes research, to help find a cure for this disease. Those of you that knew my Dad certainly understood his passion for golf and US Opens, and since Long Island hosted the US Open this past week, it felt like a good time to send out this email, since he’s been on my mind so much lately.
My Dad was a man of the community. He believed deeply in helping anyone he could. His help was often in the form of advice, like recommending the best golf course to play at, or a good tip for your backswing (which is obviously important advice). But his help was also in doing the right thing, whether or not someone was watching. He was a Sunday school teacher, a boy scout leader, a baseball coach, and involved in any committee that asked for his help. He cherished relationships with people, and sought to be kind and courteous to anyone he met. He treated everyone with respect, no matter what their life circumstances might be, and he genuinely enjoyed the relationships he formed.
As most of you probably know, he left us too soon. Living with diabetes most of his life took its toll, and he passed away in 2013 at the age of 60. He got to meet our oldest son Jonah (who is named for him) as a newborn, and the memories of those few meetings bring tears to my eyes as I type this. I think about him every day, as I do my best to emulate what a terrific father and person he was. I ride in the tour de cure in his honor to raise money for research so that other families won't have to lose a loved one to this disease in the future.
You all have been tremendously supportive in the past, and together, we've raised a nice amount of money. I'd love to keep it going! And as always, if anyone wants to join me, it would be a lot of fun to have you come ride!
Thanks as always for your support!
