"To give anything less than your best, is to sacrifice the gift."
Our parents lived genuine love and hard work. I was raised to be true to myself and others. To earn my way. Live my dreams and treat all others with respect, lending a hand when you can.
I have been blessed to coach and teach; to have an opportunity to positively and productively influence the lives of our young is a joy and great responsibility.
In the garage learning more and more about music. Blues.
Thankful for the blessings of health, family, friends and esteemed colleagues.
We learn how to learn.
Live your dreams and practice self discipline and continuous improvement!
