What did you always want to do that you haven’t done yet?

I dream of taking a coastal road trip from the Pacific Northwest (probably originating from my aunt's home in Seattle) to Los Angeles. I've heard that this route is a scenic paradise. Imagine!

Gone on a blind date?


Skipped school?


Sang Karaoke?


Paid for a meal with coins only?


Done something you told yourself you wouldn't?


Favorite vacation spot?

Seattle, WA (for almost 40 yrs.)

Any words of wisdom?

Let's remember that these are the good ol' days as we focus on the BEST in our days. It is a blessing to say that I experience the promise of happiness each day that I live this quiet, simple life Our Father gifted me. Peace! :)

I told my little brother (Matt) about Byron's passing, and we reflected on his signature song "God Is". This is what he had to say: "Amen! His version of the song was the basis of my learning how to play it, and I've been sangin' it ever since!" Byron was a multi-faceted, multi-talented brother whose influence endures, and we are thankful.

My earliest memories of Byron are moving pictures of us in Sr. John Bosco's 1st grade classroom at Holy Ghost Elementary School before consolidaton (AIC/Holy Ghost School). Byron was well-liked_ a force of nature, and I was a quiet kid. But you know what? He made me and the rest of us who were rather shy feel like we were a part of the group, and I will never forget that. As we grew and took somewhat divergent paths in school and life, Byron remained unseasonal, always the same friend I had met so many years before. What a mighty, welcoming spirit! May we forever remember his ready smile and thunderous laughter that (I suspect) came from pure joy.
