Case, my friend. The last 5 months to be able to reconnect have been fantastic. As I sit and write this…I am amazed at how things come full circle. It always comes back to “good begets good,” dude…I guess we’re living proof of that. First, I want to say thank you for writing your LinkedIn post all those months ago. It finally got “the idea” of Homage out of my head and into the world. I am thrilled to say that this “little idea” I had knocking around in my skull has allowed me an outlet to say thank you to many folks that didn’t know they might have even played a part in my life. For this, I will be eternally grateful to you.
Second, I want to wish you the best of luck in this new chapter at Junior Achievement of South Florida. This “dream” of yours to not only have a great gig…but also to really make an impact bigger than yourself is something I admire greatly. Having dinner and speaking with you in person after more than 20 years of not seeing one another left me with the feeling – THIS DUDE’S GONNA DO FANTASTIC THINGS WITH THIS OPPORTUNITY. That is something that really stuck with me.
Casey, you’re a great dude and an even better father. You’re living the dream, bro. It’s now time to go at this next chapter with the same fervor you’ve applied to get yourself to where you are today…and doing so by giving back. Always thinking about others more than yourself. You’re a class act, my friend. I am thrilled to continue on this epic journey with you and hopefully create more memories with our group of guys – to be there for one another as life unfolds – good, bad or indifferent. The challenges await, and Casey, you’re a class act…I am blessed to call you my friend.
