I am now coaching a number of strength athletes.
I met you recently at the Canadian PowerLifting Championships in Calgary 2005. You may
remember that I was part of Nathan's cheering crowd, and that I am Andy's
dad. I just wanted to express my appreciation for your dedication, and
mostly for the role model you are for these young guys. In a day and age
in which a lot of young people idolize rock musicians or greedy athletes
who are only centered on themselves, you truly stand out. I have peace
knowing my son, and his friend, are in the company of what I view as great
men. History probably won't record it that way, but that is most certainly
the way it really is. I look forward to meeting with you in Chilliwack
next year (I think thats what you said), and, in the meantime, thanks once
again for the tremendous job you're doing in helping to form what will be
the future of our society in a very few years.
