This holiday season was tempered with sadness, as we heard of the death of a neighbor, 42-year old husband and father to two sweet young children. It struck me hard because their children are the same age as my own. I couldn't imagine my children losing their father, at this or any age. And it brings me to tears.
So besides the 'what can I do?' moments, I decided to heed the request for donations to the Santore Children's Fund in lieu of flowers; by offering not only my checkbook, but my skills and service as well.
My sincerest thanks to friends who are supporting these efforts. It is my hope that we can do something good together in small ways.
Thanks for reading.
