About the Book

At about 6:00 p.m. on January 5, 2012, my wife Marie suffered a severe traumatic brain injury. This book describes how we (Marie and I) coped and healed over the years since the accident. It is a story of love. It relates much more than the injury and the healing of it; it also records the complications of life that surrounded the event and its aftermath.

He was graduated from the University of Maryland (BS), and George Washington University (MBA). Meanwhile, he and Marie had two sons, Michael (m. Stephanie) and Daniel (m.

Their grandsons Levi, Ari and Sammy, who are still back in Maryland, don't come down to visit Pops and Grammy in Florida often enough now that they moved away.
