As we head to the beaches, the parks, the pools and the BBQs, let us remember…
And just a few hours after I posted this, Mitch called me in to see Kip Jacoby’s mom on the Today Show. Though I don’t recall if I ever met her or not, I think about her and Kip’s family often… Kip called our house a lot back in his magnet school days with Derek. I certainly remember him to be focused and persistent! RIP Sgt.
