There is No Way to Thank Everyone, but Some People Must be Mentioned

I wish I could share this news of my being named to the FIA Hall of Fame with my mother and father, but both have passed, my mother in 2022 and my father in 2003. Even though my father has been gone for nearly a generation, his light shines through me via his wisdom, tolerance, community service, faith and love of family.

The FIA sure knows a Hall of Fame Way to say ‘I love you’ on Valentine’s Day

The FIA sure knows how to say I love you on Valentine’s Day. Shortly after the newsletter was published yesterday, the FIA sent a press release announcing the names of the 2024 inductees into the Hall of Fame and my name was on the list.

I was very pleased that two people I nominated were named to the Hall of Fame. This is not to say other people did not nominate these two also, but I nominated Leslie Sutphen and Wiliam J. Mallers, Sr. for the Hall of Fame. Mallers is a former employer of mine when I was at First American Discount, a firm he founded.
