These are a few of the people that were in my life at some point. Mostly friends. I’ll add to it over time as more come and go.
1998 Danilo Moura
I met him and his brother Darius through working as a Valet. Danilo became a really good friend of mine. We took a few motorcycle rides together and hung out once in a while. He was just a really down-to-earth easy person to talk to. Unfortunately he moved to North Carolina and we have since lost touch. Once in a while we will text or call each other, and still stay in touch with his wife Caroline on social media. But he is definitely missed.
2014 Maria Florio
Maria is a great person and is one of the few people I’ve met on social media who seems to have a genuine heart. Though she lives in Florida for 6 months and Italy for the other 6, her and I have become good friends and even started a “Make a Difference” podcast together in 2015.
1980 Louie the Barber
Louie was my barber throughout my entire childhood and even through college. He sadly retired sooner than expected and I was forced to find another place to get my hair cut. But he was one of my favorite people. To this day, he always calls me on my birthday because mine is the same day as his son’s birthday. It’s sad to see him age, but he will forever be a great memory in my life
1985 Joe Geisel
He was my best friend throughout most of my school years. In Junior and Senior year of college though, he hung out with the ‘cooler’ kids and I didn’t fit in with his crowd anymore. He also slept with my girlfriend Dawn at the time. I haven’t spoken to him or seen him since I graduated high school.
