   This was taken on March 8, 2017 in the "EDR"* at the Winchester Contact Center. I was being presented with my 10 Year Anniversary Certificate. I was presented with this by Deputy CIO Tony Gallardy. This picture shows who was there for the presentation. What made this a very special time for me was having Tony present this to me, and for the very kind words he spoke. Tony and I have known each other since 1976. Which as of right now, that is over 41 years ago.

   While I am battling terminal lung cancer, I know presenting me with this 10 year certificate took on a special meaning to everyone that was there. I was not expected to be alive. I was given 6-12 months to live, more than 14 months ago. So, just being there meant a lot to me, and a lot of other people. My entire chain of command was present and I will never be able to thank them all for making this a very meaningful day to me.

   I was honored to have Tony present the certificate, while VP John Baker and Carlo Hernandez were in attendance. It made the day that much more special, and I know everyone went out of their way to make it memorable. And it was and will go down as one of the highest honors I was ever given by NFCU.
