There’s No Way to Ride a Trojan Horse

My son asked me recently if the world was a better place in the 1970s. I remember music fondly, we can’t forget that it was the era of polyester suits, strange hair, gas shortages, 55mph speed limits, and also a world without personal computers.

Remembering Dan DeLisle

We all lost a great friend and very dedicated Shepley team member right after Labor Day, Dan DeLisle. We can bless our good fortune that allowed his life’s path to intersect with ours and we can remember the examples he set for the rest of us.
