Why I Participate:

Last Sunday, July 15th, my wife Julie passed away.

We met in high school and started dating when we were 16 years old. She has been my soul mate and best friend throughout the better part of my life.

On July 26, 2013 she was diagnosed with a highly malignant form of brain cancer. She faced her disease with incredible courage and positivity. She is one of the sweetest and strongest persons I have ever met.

My son and I were with her last night when she passed. I am so grateful for that and having been blessed with her love and friendship. I am also thankful for the two beautiful children that we have as they are a source of joy and strength. I have received so much support during this very hard journey. Family, friends, medical staff and even the kindness of strangers has been overwhelming. Caterpillar and Solar have been a source of immense support and strength for me. I am most grateful to work for a company and leadership that has stood with me and my family throughout this entire journey.

The following morning Gaby asked me what Julie's spirit animal is. I said "unicorn." One of a kind. Beautiful, magical and strong.

Julie will be a source of continuing strength and comfort in our lives. We take comfort in her legacy of joy and kindness - and in knowing she is free. God certainly has a special place for her in heaven.

We will keep pushing.
