I am a hard working 56 year old male with a family of three adult children and a lovely wife. I have survived cancer of the larynx and relish everyday I am alive.
I have lost some truly dear friends and family at relatively young ages and as of this past year put to rest my mother who now lies in peace beside my father.
I evaluate stained glass for restoration purposes and research the history of these same windows and have an extensive construction and civil engineering background. I have had some material published and am in the process of co-authoring a book. My contribution to the world in the work I do will be realized for at least the next 100 years.
I am also locked in an obligation which requires me to be here or anywhere for that matter, to defend the memory of a dear friend for whom I have taken on the responsibility of ensuring his legacy and material is recognized.
This is a fight I did not chose and do not want but will pursue to the end because it is right to honor a promise I made to Wil Faust' widow and brother that I would protect his material, when they entrusted it to me.
Does that answer it for you?
