It was over twenty-five years ago that I was a carefree sailor of the West Pacific. I was alone in the world. No ties. No family. It was that ocean, those long nights at sea, that taught me what I really wanted in my life. Family.
Today I am the proud father of three children, a daughter who is an attorney, a son who works at Apple, and another daughter who is about to complete her first degree. All are fantastic kids. I’m very proud of them.
But none of it would have been possible without my beautiful wife who gave a poor sailor who wanted a home the chance he needed. Each day I am thankful for her. She gave me my life.
