Yesterday, my friend's son, Patrick, was abducted by his father.  His father, Sean, was supposed to be bringing him home to his mother's house in St. Louis per court orders.  Instead, the father chose to vanish into thin air with Patrick.  His mother, Trish, thinks they may be in California, so please keep an eye out and dial 911 if you see him!

Patrick is 5'6" tall and weighs 150 pounds.  He has blue eyes, freckles, and curly long hair (if they haven't cut it). Patrick also has a large birthmark on his left thigh.

His father, Sean, (see photo below) was born in 1970.  His wife's name is Michelle.  

Pay attention to both faces as YOU could be the person that helps find Patrick to bring him home to his mom, in St. Louis.

Patrick is a high functioning autistic kid, who loves music and life.  He loves his pet bulldog and his family in St. Louis.  This sweet kid has an amazing spirit and sense of humor.  He is loved by his mother and well cared for in her home.  

On the day he was to return, on July 15th, there were plans to celebrate his birthday with his mom. Instead of celebrating a joyous homecoming, his mother, Trish now grieves the void in her heart as her child is missing without a trace. I can only imagine the heartbreak and anxiety both she AND Patrick are feeling. 

Currently, they think he's taken him somewhere in California - possibly southern CA. 

If you see Patrick - dial 911.  Since an amber alert has not been issued by the local police - time is of the essence.  I think it's crazy that an alert has not been issued but I guess the authorities feel that being with a parent really isn't missing. 

PLEASE help bring Patrick home. Share this post & spread the word.

Social media grass roots efforts are needed to help push this forward to shed light on his disappearance.  When posting anything - please use the hashtag #bringpatrickhome

Undercover Boss Eye Opener

This past week I watched Undercover Boss, which featured Retro Fitness and one employee in particular, who got fired.  Normally Undercover Boss shows a few employees, with great stories and good work ethic, and sometimes there may be a few problem employees.

In this last issue, it seems all anyone is talking about is that one problem employee, named Jacqueline, who was a shining example of what bad attitudes are really about, and was about as bad as they come.

Jacqueline, who on the outside, seemed like a clean cut decent person until she opened her mouth to speak.  And this girl wasn't just rude ... she was abusive to everyone around her. 

As if it wasn't bad enough that she was completely unprofessional and had no compassion for anyone around her at work ... she then turned into the flippant, defensive, careless girl, who talked back to the CEO of the company when he tried to explain his grievances with her.  She passionately denied anything he was trying to explain to her, …

Brian Naranjo - A Celebrated Man

It's Saturday...

It's Saturday, and at this very moment a few hundred miles north of me, my friend is grieving the loss of her husband.

It's Saturday and this week has felt like an eternity.  I've moved through this week with such a heavy heart.

And I feel guilty for being trapped in this fog of sorrow, as I'm not the one who lost my life long partner of over 20 years. I'm not the one who just got my husband back from Afghanistan, only to lose him to an unexpected death.

I can not fathom how my friend is coping, walking step by step through the process of burying her soul mate at the tender young age of 39.

Brian Naranjo would have been 40 years old on February 29th, 2012. Brian Naranjo would have his whole life ahead of him.  He would have been celebrating a marquis year, when you're supposed to reflect on where you've come and what you have left to do. 

In reading his Facebook wall, as I'm inexplicably drawn to it, I've read the many memo…

No, Dude! I Really Don't Want to See That!

Yesterday was one for the books ... 
I was in a meeting with a sales manager at a car dealership, which was almost coming to a close when someone from the lobby alerted the manager that someone had driven up on the lot.  From the look on his face, I could tell that whoever this person was - was not exactly welcome.
He promptly apologized and excused himself so that he could deal with the person we'll call 'Dude'.  Within seconds I heard Dude and could tell that he was high maintenance from the commotion in the lobby.  He had not only shown up in a test drive truck but had a ton of his belongings inside and a trailer hitched to the back.
Patiently, I waited inside hoping that whatever went down wouldn't be a 'situation' as the energy felt in the dealership was a bit heightened.
A few minutes later, the manager returned to process a paperwork for Dude when Dude stepped into the inner office for a quick question.  I smelled him before I saw him as smoke rolled in…
