...an obituary June 9, 2017

My mother has died this day, however the many lessons she taught remain. The last lesson was poignant and demonstrated she could still teach her eldest son a timely indelible in her late eighties: The older one gets the more important diet and exercise becomes. Their neglect can have dire impacts on one's health and lifestyle choices.

My mother's many teachings give me motivation and insights today and have done so throughout my earliest memories. I loved my mother and am grateful to have known her. She is missed but not forgotten.



Sincere words may not be beautiful. Beautiful words may not be sincere. The wise may not be learned. The learned may not be wise. The good may not be rich. The rich may not be good. Those who know may not speak. Those who speak may not know.

These are a few of my favorite things...
