Episode 77 – Mom Rock

Mother’s Day has been a bummer day for me since my Ma’ passed away in 2007. It’s nice to remember and honor her memory, but it’s tough on Mother’s Day, especially on Social Media, where digital walls are plastered with images of friends and their still around Moms. That’s all changed now with the birth of my Son Dylan, as I get to celebrate from a new angle, giving thanks to my wonderful Wife Jeannine who’s a phenomenal Mom.

    Derek this was a beautifully written wonderful tribute to two amazing women. I really enjoyed yesterday set while driving down Lake shore Drive in Chicago and appreciated the shout out to my wife Lori live on the air. It brought a big smile to her face! Happy Mother’s Day to Jeannine!
