I’ve been trying to frame my feelings since our participation in the Independence Day parade.

Mark drove his beautiful 65 Thunderbird and we were a part of several cars from the Sunshine Region AACA car club of which he is Vice President.

We were ferrying Chuck, a highly decorated Army Ranger Vietnam Vet, and Kyle the Sarasota District One City Commissioner.
