Brantingham Golf Club, NY

I am very pleased, and proud to share this Latitude with everyone. I am Roger’s uncle by marriage, I am also soooo proud of him and my niece Erica for the manner in which they handled this entire cancer challenge.

I was happy and proud, again, to wear the purple bracelet in support of Roger while he struggled with the monthly rigors of cancer treatment.  This bracelet was a major reason my Latitude worked for me.

My Latitude is the 18thhole of my golf course, Brantingham Golf Club, in Brantingham, NY.  I should say that it can be any hole but for me it is the 18th. 

As I stand there on the tee I think about Roger and what he would give to be with me, but also I think of the absolute solitude it gives me.  The peace and comfort to be there and to be cancer free for sure.

When things are tough during a round I look at the bracelet and think about you Roger and suddenly everything is not nearly as dire as the 5 foot putt for par, or the need to get up and down on 18 to shoot even par. 

I won the club championship this past year using the my Latitude and thinking of Roger, Erica, and Liam.  The peace I fell is incredible, thank you Rog for allowing me this moment to share my Latitude! 

I am thankful you are Ok, and I hope everyone will take your lead and latitudinize!!!
