Below are tips to help Fathers, Grandfathers, Uncles, Brothers and men everywhere be more organized:

Loving aunts, uncles and cousins. Beautiful godchildren and making their list twice of the fun things they did over the Summer. A 30 plus year friendship with my BFF. Friends who are supportive, loving, fun and have a great sense of humor. Lynn Edwards who helps me stay organized, on track and moving forward. My clients for continuing to allow me to do what I love to do. For the people I work with at my client sites who make me feel like a member of the team.

Awesome church family. Beautiful community I can enjoy. The women who have become mother and grandmother figures.
