I know that AgentGenius is a web site about real estate and technology, and this may not be the place to write this post, but Benn and Lani gave me a login and a password, so if I’m inappropriate here, its their fault.
We all talk about Social Media and Social Networking from the business perspective, but there may be too little said about the Social part of the equation. If you’re reading this, you are probably aware of the great loss that I and my family recently experienced and are still struggling with. And you probably know that Benn and Lani Rosales rallied the RE Blogosphere in a show of concern, friendship, support, and even love in the aftermath of our personal cataclysm. Donations came pouring into the American Cancer Society and the Lupus Foundation of America in my wife’s name, and notes, cards, calls, emails and more arrived every day indicating the strength of our social fabric, and the incredible quality of the individuals who inhabit the RE.Net.
To all of those people, I need to say a public thank you for reaching out – every effort you made was recognized, appreciated, and needed by me and my son and daughter in law, as well as the rest of our family. I would name each of you individually and personally, but I am afraid to forget any one of the many people whose compassion and support have helped sustain us.
I also need to thank Benn and Lani for being so solicitious and understanding of my inability to write or create on any level (even the low comedy level that people have learned to expect from me) as they patiently waited for me to get back to communicating here. Because of their patience and understanding, and all of the caring you have all shared, our healing process, as long as it may take, has at least begun, and for that help, I just want to say thank you once more.
