My son, Cameron is celebrating a birthday tomorrow on April 3rd. He is 33 years young and is seen above (on the left side) with his brother Blake. Cameron is motivated and is an inspiration to all he meets. He is in the prime of his life with a wedding coming up in the fall and his business is doing well. I am one proud Mom – and thankful for the many blessings. Cameron is in control of his own life and is enjoying each day.
My Mother, Catherine Mary passed away last month from heart failure. She was an amazing mother! She was regal, classy, beautiful and most of all….an incredible mother for all of my 58 years on this planet. She loved her children and grandchildren and supported us through thick and thin.
I have not yet figured out – how I will live without my Mom. I am still talking to her daily and hoping she hears me. She is still alive inside of each of her children – Gary, Drew and myself. She is our foundation and key to our success – we are very lucky to be her children.
My Mother leaves behind a legacy and a history of always doing the right thing. Her parents were Volga Germans from Russia and immigrated to this country when they were very young. My Mother was a first generation American and was born and raised in Chicago. She spoke German to her sisters and family and moved to Los Angeles when she was 19 years old and met my Dad at a dance. I could go on and on – but I won’t.
My Mom loved Christmas and baking, she loved to watch the Lakers on T.V. – she loved to paint and spent most of her free time as an artist. She was very creative until just before her death.
Rest in peace, Mom – thank you for all of your life lessons. We love you much ….
Two weeks ago – my brother, Gary married his beautiful bride, Cindy. What a blessed event, they both overcame obstacles and found a way to be happily ever after. After spending one week in Costa Rica relaxing – they are home beginning their new lives as Mr. and Mrs. – Amen dreams really do come true.
This year in 2015, all of us working at the Disneyland Resort in California are getting ready to dazzle.

What a legacy Walt Disney started on July 17, 1955. Below are some images from our Cast Showcase today.
Last Wednesday while spending time with my colleague in Florida on a business trip she invited me to experience some of the local theater there in Orlando. The show was “Motown the Musical” with over 50 classical hits such as “My Girl” and “Ain’t No Mountain high enough” – the show is really the story behind the music of Diana Ross, Berry Gordy and Smokey Robinson.
The Dr. Phillips Center for Performing Arts is a brand new gorgeous theater and is located at 455 S. Magnolia Avenue, Orlando, Florida. For more information you can go to Drphillipscenter.org
The Theater is located in the downtown business area of Orlando, right across from The Amway Center. There is plenty of parking close by, I was really impressed. Coming from Los Angeles where going to the theater is a 2 hour drive and most of which is jammed packed with traffic. This was a delightful look at a smaller city doing everything right. The group that put on the musical is called Florida Theatrical Association and is part of the touring Broadway series. I give the musical an A+ for wonderful sets, elaborate costumes and high energy!
The year was 1998, my children and I were visiting my brother in Manhattan Beach, California.
