A Short Tribute To Joe Hamel :)

Bode’s journal to bring back to his class about his trip to Miami.
We spent some time with Paul, from Ascent Protein, while we were out in Colorado a couple of months ago. We got to talking about our wine contest party, and he told us that he swears by this BJ’s Wholesale brand wine. So, he sent this over to prove his point ๐Ÿ˜‰
Worked on snap words with Bode for an hour or so tonight. Each time he got one right, I gave him a piece of an apple, and this kid LOVES apples.
Alex’s daughter, Kennedy, when she was about 3 or 4 years old. Found this pic in my phone today and it reminded me of how quickly time goes with these little puppies ๐Ÿ™‚

Just a quick shout out to one of the greatest families I have ever met, The Hamel’s…all 12 of you.

I had only met their Dad a handful of times before, but I didn’t need many more introductions than that to know that all of the stories about him were true. We got to join his family and friends tonight in saying goodbye to him, and celebrating the amazing life he had.

He was an incredible man that led an incredible life.

His son, Dave, is one of our closest friends…and, one of those people that you just can’t ever seem to get enough of. The mere sound of this guy’s name makes everyone’s face light up, but not even close to what people’s faces are like when he’s talking to you.

Dave Hamel is, literally, a living legend. And, people like that come from other people like that. There is no doubt in my mind that Dave is the man he is because of the father that raised him.

So, with that, thank you Joe Hamel, for being the man you were…and, raising the family you did.
