“One of My Clients Just Died in a Parasailing Accident”


I did a mortgage for Kathleen and her husband a few months ago. They were so exciting, as it was their first home. Kathleen was such a delight.


Our condolences to the entire family. Her husband Stephen, their daughter Erin and Jim, her dad, our prayers go out to all of them.


When we see tragic events like this, focus on hugging your family a little closer. Always tell them that you love them, as none of us know, if we have tomorrow.,0,4371315.story

Joe ... I know you consider your clients more than another closed loan. They become friends and family to you. News like this is difficult and weighs on your mind. Condolences to all. Rick

It is always sad to lose a friend or client.  This is a good reminder to put safety first.

Enjoy the summertime activities with your camera in hand.

Joe, How tragic. While on vacation in Mexico years ago I witnessed a para-sailing death where the person was trying to land and was impaled on a construction site. It is a horrible memory. My thoughts and prayers will be with this family.
