Reflections of 2017

Reflecting on 2017, an emotionally,  challenging year. I realize I am, thankful.

I am thankful for:

My wife, Kathryn, who encourages me, challenges me to be my best, and is a great role model because she is always learning.

My Father, Edward Joseph, who was a loving, caring Father, and died on May 8th, 2017

My Mother, who carries on the Young legacy

My Daughter, Hannah who gave birth to Avery Quinn on June 26, 2017 and juggles the challenge of a career and raising a family gracefully.

My Cat, Booga Boo, The Booger, Buddha, who comforted us every day for 14 years, taught us love, and died in June.

My opportunity to work at NASA, where there are so many intelligent people, who are passionate in what they do.

My wife’s friend, Amy Duvall, who, at 39 died of breast cancer in October and showed us how to live with courage.


Look Out 2018, here I come!
