A Beautiful Legacy – My Aunt Dorothy

My Aunt Dorothy was a special lady.  Naturally loving and caring, wherever she went, she left behind a trail of joy and happiness.  Such a bubbly personality, with a great sense of humor and could be delightfully goofy at time, much like my mom.  When we would visit, she’d come searching for a hug, and…… Continue reading A Beautiful Legacy – My Aunt Dorothy

The Honoring of a Sacrifice

Time defines most things when you think about it.  The ongoing ticking of the clock, minute after minute.  Time preceded us.  Time will continue after us.  This is the nature of things.  But the beginning and the end are unique to each of us.  We only have the time in between to work with.  We…… Continue reading The Honoring of a Sacrifice

The Building of Integrity and Character

Throughout my career in the information technology field, I’ve lost count how many times I upgraded computer labs.  The time required for disconnecting and dismantling the computers were far quicker than the setup of the new machines.  New computer setups require extensive time and effort to properly get the machines set up, configured, and keeping…… Continue reading The Building of Integrity and Character

Beyond the Cathedral

We watched with awe and sadness as the fires ravaged the cathedral of Notre Dame.  Millions watched, transfixed as the spire crumbled into the inferno.  Crowds gathered along the streets in Paris to watch a special place of church and history crumble.  Watching the clips on the news and reading the feeds, I felt a…… Continue reading Beyond the Cathedral
