TAP’s go out to my SiL Vicki, diagnosed with breast cancer and PaceCars co-worker recovering from surgery for colo-rectal cancer. YHC took us out this morning reminding everyone we have so much to be thankful for and to keep all those that are sick and suffering in your TAP’s. Also keeping our soldiers, sailors, airmen, police, firefighters, Dr’s and nurses in our TAP’s daily.


I know I speak for all the men in this group and F3 around the country when I say how grateful we are that F3 came into our lives. Building H.I.M.’s High Impact Men one at a time. I personally want to thank everyone that pushed me along the way. The guys that hung back when I was bringing up the rear, I was a very sad clown and #OldFatGuy. Thanks to all of you I hope to set an example not only to the PAX but to my children, grandchildren, co-workers and everyone I meet. One last item, totally forgot to mention it yesterday. If you’re lucky enough to have you parents still with you, pick up the phone and call them. Call them often and for no other reason just to tell them you love them. I speak from personal experience, it means more than anything else you do for them.  I continue to be honored to lead this group of men. Cruiser Out
