Not many people know this about me, but years ago when my daughter was born, she was so excited to meet her mother and I, that she entered the world weeks before she was due. She was the most special, little thing that we’ve ever seen. Her premature delivery meant she was tiny. In fact, she was so small that she could easily fit within the palm of my hand…I will never forget those moments.
I’ll also never forget the good people at the Ronald McDonald house that gave us everything we required during such a trying time in our family’s history.
That experience has never left me..
Today, I give back any way I can through the support of the Ronald McDonald House and by lending my special skills and abilities, like flying for great organizations like Angel Flight. Having the ability to give back to those who so desperately need it, as I once did, is one of the most humbling experiences of my life.
I also spend time helping local organizations and groups such as the Curtiss Museum, where I serve as a member on the Board of Trustees, and The Seaplane Pilots Association of America, where I am acting regional director.
