A Personal Moment Of Joy For “The Progressive Professor”!

Yesterday, Sunday, June 1, was a special day, as my older son David married his sweetheart, Stephanie Levy, at the Willard Hotel in Washington, DC, two blocks from the White House!

The Willard has its own history, as the official inauguration hotel for several Presidents, and having had every President visit, if not stay, at the hotel, along with many other celebrities. Many Presidents since Franklin Pierce in March 1853 have stayed there, and Abraham Lincoln resided there for about ten days before his inauguration on the eve of the Civil War.

There is no greater moment in a personal lifetime than seeing one’s son or daughter marry, and I am extremely pleased to welcome a “daughter” to the family, and for my younger son Paul to welcome a “sister” into the family. Both David and Stephanie are very bright, highly motivated, hard working people, and I am proud of both of them, as well as my younger son, Paul!

This was, in its own way, a history making day, and a day to reflect about what is really important in life, and nothing is more important than family! So yesterday was a day uniting two families from South Florida and St Louis, Missouri!

    Congratulations indeed Prof. Ron. I understand your pride. I have welcomed a great son into my family when my oldest daughter married a few summers ago. It too was a good blending of the two families. Good luck to us all and may many blessings to you and your expanding family.

    May I propose an Irish toast:

    May your grass always be green
    May your skies forever blue
    May God Bless the bride and groom
    And may God bless you!…

    Mazel tov!
