Publisher's Note: Half A Century Down


I love a journey, and this month my journey to 50 is here. For the past 49 years I have been focused on family and friends — including 29 years (35 since we met) focused on the love of my life, Andrea, and 25 years focused on our three beautiful girls. All of this has shaped me into the person I am today. Over the past year leading up to the big 5-0, I have been focused on my health.

As I look ahead it is with great excitement for the new opportunities that still lie ahead. I am staying committed to my health coach and working at it every week. My girls are doing well, all growing into excellent young ladies who I am so proud of and my wife, Andrea, remains the rock of my life — with words of encouragement and love every day. I could not do anything without her by my side.

I am blessed by a supportive family and appreciate the closeness of my friends and colleagues.

So as 50 comes in, I look forward to a year-long celebration and two weddings in the very near future. May God bless me with health and happiness for many more years to come.
