To remember....

Although I haven't been "down south" in NY/ CT much lately, many of my early MINI memories include the JackMan. His smile as bright as the chrome MINI parts he was constantly collecting, lit up any room or as it often was parking lot where we gathered.

I also remember him at Ed's service sitting just in front of me and to the right with his hand on his son's back occasionally whispering reassurances and instruction on what to do and this is how you behave as if being there was just another coaching lesson. It was obvious that they were indeed on the "same team". I remember thinking what a great Dad to do this, that all kids should be as lucky to have that kind of support, and what a wonderful way to honor Ed who was the ultimate father.

He will be missed.
