October Newsletter

Fall is now among us, thoughts turn to pumpkins, mums, football games, bonfires, and anything pumpkin flavored.  This is my favorite time of the year.  Jeans and a sweater with a nice fire in the backyard on a cool autumn night is my idea of heaven.  It also marks the beginning of the hockey season.  My daughter, Lexi, is beginning her senior year of college hockey.  This will mark the 20th year of hockey between Tyler and Lexi.  Early mornings, late nights, thousands of miles, cold rinks, and some of the best parent bonding Jody and I could have asked for.  Fall is also a very popular time to look at your estate plan for you and your loved ones.  Be sure to contact us soon to save your spot before the holidays so we can meet and catch-up.  Live each day to the fullest and stop to enjoy the beautiful fall canvas all around.
