Saying goodbye to Aida

Posted by David on June 23, 2015 in Life, Memories |

As we go through life, we have the opportunity to meet, interact, work and in some cases live with an amazing variety of people. Many – if not most – fade from your memory, into mental obscurity, unless there is an event or reminder that brings their memory back. But there is that unique minority […]

It wasn’t a bad dream. There was no nightmare to wake up from. It is all real. So very real. Today and tonight was an opportunity those of us who were George’s friends and family to gather and celebrate his life, and all that he brought to those he touched. I can’t say enough how […]

Posted by David on October 3, 2013 in Life |

I found this fun Infographic today about famous personality types. After a quick read and examination I’ve concluded that I’m either ENTP (Originator) or ENFP (Advocate).
