I just got back from the fabulous Pekin Insurance Company Scenic trip to Puerto Rico and what a great time we had. It is really a pleasure to do business with a first class insurance company like Pekin Insurance with all of their wonderful people. The agents had a great time. There was one tragedy on the trip, however. One of the Pekin agents from Ohio had a heart attack on the golf course and at a young age, passed away. I didn’t know him, but what a reminder of how short life can be, and how we need to live our lives to the fullest. It was also a reminder to me of the importance of life insurance. When this kind of tragedy strikes a family and a business, there is nothing like life insurance to keep the family in the home, the kids in the schools, and the business open for the future. Yes, we all can learn from these tragedies.
One more thing happened. While touring in the Rainforest, my wife Nancy slipped and fractured her foot. She was in a lot of pain, but after an Xray, it was set and she was ready to go. A lot of pain and a lot of hours at the emergency room, but she will be slowed for a while, but fine. The hospitality shown by the hotel and the tour staff was incredible. They we so kind to her.
In spite of all of that…….it was a great trip.
