REMEMBERING A FRIEND

George Steinbrenner passed away this morning. I am sad. I had tried to reach him last week on his birthday (July 4th) which I had done every year for decades only to discover he was unreachable. The general concensus on George was that he was one tough cookie, but I knew a very different George Steinbrenner. He was always there when I needed him. He stood with another good friend Tip O'Neil and gave his support during those dark days when we were working to save Chrysler. Whether it was a Derek Jeter bat for my grandson or joining him to watch his beloved Yankees, George is counted amoung those rare individuals who are true friends. He used to call me "Big Man", but in fact he was the "Big Man". I'll miss you George.

Dear Mr. Iacocca,
I am so sorry for the loss of Mr. Steinbrenner. It's never easy to lose a friend. A friend sent me an e-mail about your new book. Everything you say is so true. We sure do need to take control of our country again. I will soon be buying your book as well. I just wanted to compliment you and I will tell all my friends to read your book too.
I wish you all the best,
Janet Bernasconi
