I could never say enough about how much love they gave me and all the amazingly wonderful childhood memories the created for me. But I’ll sure try (later)…
Mrs. Cele Petersen my friend and advisor for 60 years even till the final day at 102 and even now.
My special teachers. 12 years of Catholic schools. Nuns are incredibly beautiful people.
My friends. I’ll never forget them all. “Never forget your friends.” It’s also voted the number one regret on your deathbed, not having kept up with them. So give one a call.
My 3 brothers. I’d like to forget one of them, but I can’t, even though I try sometimes. If you ever want to talk Bill, call me any time, I’m here. I think of you a lot.
My super great employees. Just the ones that didn’t rob me, after all, it is Miami, oh yeah, and all the interns. How much fun it has been, best work related memory of all: the Evergreen Solar auction. We learned so much, as painful as it was for everyone. Thanks for putting up with me and us.
Best memory ever: the after work football games in the 511 parking lot. God that lasted years I think throwing the long bomb with the mini football, as many as 20 guys playing in a parking lot only a 100 feet long. Bounce pass off the 511 office wall. The sky rocket dodgeball with Louis the death defying volunteer target. The Roman candle fights and the annual monster Christmas tree blazes in the middle of downtown Miami! I do love being a kid.
So many more:
At this point I’d better say goodnight.
