To BUD MARQUIS
There are a very few times in life that we are able to meet that special person that has changed both our thinking and or outlook on life. It may be something that this particular person may have said or had done that changed what or how we think or act. We never do know when (if ever), or where that person may come along. There are also many people that go through life without that person coming along and continue to along in life like it always have. It is that rare event when a person can actually be inspired or changed by someone else’s actions.
DAVID KAPLAN has been one of those very lucky people.
How many people do you know that can honestly say about another “that person has changed my life”
I would not be alive today had it not been for BUD MARQUIS.
Over these past 35 years, even though I did not personally speak to Bud, not a day that went by that I did not say thank you. Thank you for this extra time that I spend on this earth, thank you for the time that I have had to enjoy seeing my children grow and prosper, thank you for the good times that I have experienced.
Thank you Thank you thank you
My family has asked me to send thanks to Bud. Had it not been for Bud, there would not have been a grandpa for the children, there would not have been a grandpa to share the good times in life with. There would not have been that person that we could speak to, looking for advice, even though there were times, when we heard this advice and choose not to take it. And most of all, there would not have been that DAVID KAPLAN to have around.
My family also want to take this time to thank BUD MARQUIS for the rest of those people that have survived that terrible day when Eastern flight 401 went into the swamp.
PLEASE, NEVER FORGET
your life was never the same after that day.
