My dad’s memory resonates in all that I do. So when Father’s Day comes around, it is yet another day I remember and appreciate all the amazing influences he had on me, the lessons he taught me and all the love and support he gave to me. And make no mistake, his spirit and presence is felt everyday as he guides me through my personal and professional life. I feel very blessed.
Even through the transition of moving our office to Garden City, NY after 58 years in Ridgewood, NY he was still being a supportive mentor by sending me “signs” that would help prepare me and my team for the challenges and excitement of our new home. Reflecting on his lessons, there is one that always inspires me every day: “Heidi you are only as successful as your team behind you. Make a commitment to be there for them every day”. Sharing this with you makes me smile and I so believe no truer words were ever spoken.
My hope for you today is to make happy memories while honoring that special man in your life. And, if that special man is with you in spirit, as my dad is, celebrate their life and let those happy memories and lessons live on inside you forever.
HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!
