  • He talked – I listened.
    He told stories – I wrote them down.
    He gave examples – I asked questions.
    He made jokes – I couldn't resist witty comments.

    He became the source of my education, inspiration, motivation and admiration.

    A mentor in life.
    A mentor in my career.

    There will always be a "pre" and a "post."

    "Ask for a lot of money. You are worth it."

    I don't give a damn about that money, but I do care about the support.
    The firm belief that I can do it.
    That I am worth it.

    Forever thankful.
    Oh, those certain, special people.
