7 Things

7 things you may not have known about me.

1. Tried suicide at 16 and thought about it a few times before the birth of my daughter when I was 28. Never since.

2. In 2002 Boyd & Nicholas, Inc. was 15 minutes from bankruptcy.

3. My kidney cancer is a blessing. It caused B&N to become part of Simione in 2014 and my greater appreciation of wife, family, friends and life.

4. Even at my age I sometimes regret not becoming the CPA my mother wanted me to be or the army officer I thought my father wanted me to be. Ironic in that neither event would have changed our relationships.

5. I can’t help but feel that I failed my kids as none of them completed college. I believe their lives would be better had they done so.

6. I deeply regret my treatment of Susan, the first love of my life. We should have talked about Elaine.

7. I am scared of retirement. Is there life after work? My thinking, my readings, my social interactions are mostly within the work arena.

    Tom what outside activities are you involved in. As my wife often reminds me that I seem to be in more meetings in retirement than when I was working. I did turn down running for my party’s county chairman due to my future position as Rotary President. There is a lot out there for you and keep up the traveling. Any future trips planned to TX? I am trying to get my wife to make a trip out to Monterrey with our granddaughter. Will keep you posted and appreciate you staying in touch.

    Tom, I’m so thankful that your will to live was stronger than to leave your loved ones behind wondering.
    And now…a little something from Frank Sinatra:

    “Regrets, I’ve had a few;
    But then again, too few to mention.
    I did what I had to do
    And saw it through without exemption.

    I planned each charted course;
    Each careful step along the byway,
    And more, much more than this,
    I did it my way.

    Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew
    When I bit off more than I could chew.
    But through it all, when there was doubt,
    I ate it up and spit it out.
    I faced it all and I stood tall;
    And did it my way.

    I’ve loved, I’ve laughed and cried.
    I’ve had my fill; my share of losing.
    And now, as tears subside,
    I find it all so amusing.

    To think I did all that;
    And may I say – not in a shy way,
    “Oh no, oh no not me,
    I did it my way”.

    May God Bless you, Tom Boyd (and Nancy) with good health, family near and ever present joy.
    I’m so glad I met you and I consider you a friend.
    Bonnie O
