thank you for your contributions to the world of Ballroom Dance!
You are missed!!!
The Greg Gale Memorial Dance was held at Ballroom City
on 10/29/2017 from 2:00 - 5:00 PM.
I would like to thank Mary for organizing.
Thank you Deb, BJ, Terry, & Helen for contributing.
Thanks to everyone who brought treats, and especially YOU for coming!!
I was delighted to see so many people I have not seen in a LONG time!
Catching up, and dancing with all of my favorite partners was a hoot!!
We played all of Greg's music that he used in routines, and at his parties!
There were some GREAT old pictures, and we played a DVD
(of Greg dancing with students and partners),
which Mary created especially for the memorial.
Deb is planning a Greg Gale Birthday Party in July 2018 in memory of Greg!

and within 3 hours, my entire world changed.
I learned of some news which happened 2 years ago.
2 YEARS AGO!!!
I did not know anything about it.
It was in the news ... It was on TV ... It was in the papers ... There were vigils held.
I was on the Heidi Lucky train, and suddenly BAM...CRASH!!
After tears subsided, I decided to post a note here and pay homage to all of those who have gone before us. The wound is so fresh for me, I will not name names for the family's sake.
I do not want to stir the sadness again as it takes so long to get back to life after such a tragedy.
Cause of Death...
Accident? Pre-meditated? God's will? Natural causes? Self inflicted?
Why, oh why when it's time to go,
does God or you only know?
"They" say life is short, and time does fly,
when you're young, you think it's a lie!
Now that I'm in my autumn years,
and after lifting many beers...
I find it IS true by and by,
life is short, and then you die.
I'm not sad for the ones who are gone,
I'm sad for the ones who linger on.
Lost are those who are left behind,
I'm sad because they just can't find...
Faith, Strength, Courage or Hope,
to pass the days, and learn to cope.
I pray for your peace to get through this time,
it feels like a mountain that's so hard to climb!!!
I know you can do it as I have had to,
I give Peace, Love and Happiness to ALL of YOU!!!
[ An inside P.S. ...Wing's to YOU Donny!!]

WOW... I can not believe that you are having another birthday!
Married to a lovely wife, and having 2 awesome girls just makes me so proud!
I love you very much, and hope your day is as cool as you!!

|Hurricane Harvey Devastation!|
We often ask why these things happen.
I believe that God allows these disasters to happen to reinforce the ideals, determination and hope of the American people.
When are we, the people at our best?
During a time of need and disaster.
I am forever in awe of the fabulous people who come together to reach out and lend a helping hand.
It is the mission of America to support and give to one another during a time such as this.
God Bless YOU, and God Bless the USA!
