    Bill, I am very proud of you and all of your accomplishments. It is , indeed, a pleasure to have met you. Incidently, my wife and I donated the grass to the Chesapeake Hospice Annual Charity Ball last night to celebrate the Baldwin family and all of the great things the Hospice is doing. My wife and I were there for the formal, gala event and thrilled to be a part of it. Look forward to seeing you on Monday. Peter Lord

    Bill, I didn’t realize you were involved in so many non-charitable organizations. You are a living inspiration! I am going to try to find your books. I need an inspirational one for my youngest daughter (now 45 years old) to maybe help her in a very bad time in her life.
    I too must say I am so honored to have gone to school with you and again have connected to such an amazing young man.
    My best to you and your wife!

      Thanks, Louise. If you are looking for my books, the best source is Amazon. You can get either hard copies or digital copies there, depending on how she reads. The beauty of digital is that is quick and cheap. Hard copies are easier to process, mark up, and personalize.

      Please let me know if I can help. Feel free to tell your daughter to shoot me an email or give me a call if you like.

    I love reading your articles so much. I was having a sad moment having just lost my husband Sam in April. Your Article from Easter about your son looking at your mothers picture and telling you that he met her before you met her gave me goosebumps. Sam and I lost our son Nick almost 15 years ago at the young age of 22. I would love to think that they are together your story gives me hope. By the way, we are from Price too. I think you went to school with Sam. Looking forward to your next article.

      Thank you, Virginia. I appreciate your kind words.

      Your right. I went to school with Sam. I’m sorry to hear he is no longer with you.

      As I wrote in my recent article about Brianne, I am a firm believer that there is no end. Form and substance may change but there is no end. I have no doubt Sam and your son, Nick, are together.
