Thank you for the discipline and the mature insight to see things beyond my environment and beyond myself. It has been a rock for my adult life and an armor for all the adventures and craziness that life gives. Thank you for helping me see how people are diverse and different but not so different. Thank you for giving me a greatest wider visions and a yen to explore and learn. That's an ongoing process and for the foundation for that I thank you. God bless you and your family.

My deepest sympathies go out to the Leers family. I was one of his early (Class of '76) FHHS NJROTC students. He beamed when I showed up at school while wearing my USN dress whites.
