Bridging the Gap (Noonan Dedication in Lanesboro)

I don’t often get the chance to talk about my sister and brother-in-law in this blog, but I know they read it.

Today I’d like to recognize them for something special they did to help remember one of Berkshire County’s finest citizens.

A brand new bridge, in the little town of Lanesboro, Massachusetts, could have easily been erected with little fan fare.

So could we live our lives.

A Viet Nam veteran, from that same town, and a childhood friend of my brother-in-law, gave it his all while serving his country in Southeast Asia.

The medals he earned for valor could fill a barrel.

Though Greg tragically lost his life in a boating accident at age 43, he’ll ever be remembered by townsfolk as they drive down Miner Road.

Every one of us have enough skill to bridge the gap from mediocrity to excellence…to teach our young of the bravery of our old.

It just takes fight over flight, when faced with an uphill challenge.

Thank you Greg for all you’ve done for your country.

Thank you Helen and Thomas for shining a light and bridging a gap between the past and the present.
