While I bid you, your families, and your friends around this great, wonderful world of ours a very Merry Christmas, I also must spread a note of good cheer in the form of information.
I once counted seven Christmases (and Easter Sundays) in a row I was not home.
Today I sleep well knowing good people have taken my place and are keeping the world safe.
I plan to wake up on Christmas and thank God for my wife, for my life, for my family, and for my friends and colleagues all over the world. You make my life richer, more meaningful, and worthwhile.
Sleep well, my friends. Merry Christmas!
