Cari is named after my friend Carrie Emrich. Carrie was sassy, very smart, funny as heck, had a wry sense of humour, and followed a different drummer. Cari is all of these things and more. I am so proud of her, and I know Carrie would have been thrilled that she is her namesake. She would love how brave she is.
And as I said last year, I will never forget. The accident shaped my life, made me realize that life can't be taken too seriously, and that we have to be there for others. Make the world a better place. Make a difference.
