Family story

I have always felt very humbled by the degree of generosity of the various members of my family – my immediate family, and my family of origin, and my extended family, going back centuries. My mother’s father was a farmer, an investor, and an entrepreneur who supported charities very generously, as well as giving financially to his family later in his life. My mother’s father served in World War I and was a decorated hero. Both my father’s and mother’s mother served people in their communities in so many ways.
